    Never thought I'd be requesting an SSD review but, is there any chance of bit-tech including the Sandisk Ultra II drives in the future?

    These are frequently subject to Amazon and Ebuyer specials, so a look at their relative performance might be worthwhile. However, as you rightly point out in the review, it's usually a case of buying the biggest you can for the least money.

    I'll see if I can source a sample, but as you said I doubt it'll be a game changer!

    Any chance the chart entries could indicate the connection method for the SSDs? i.e. M.2, SATAIII, PCI-E, etc.

    Is it unethical to buy one from Amazon, test it and return it? Seems reasonably reasonable.

    Quick update on this - we simply have far too much going on to look back at older drives. Sorry!

    TBF this is a good point, SANDISK are frequently the best priced drives - on offer that is

    I have had a few and never had any issues and always been impressed...

    They have a lot of models though - why not contact them and do a SANDISK roundup?!

    I recently saw an announcement for water cooling for an intel SSD, and the poster mentioned it was odd since they do not need cooling according to the manufacturer.
    Then later I read a technical pdf about increasing lifetime and number of cycles on TLC NAND and the design relies amongst others on a few temperature sensors on the SSD PCB because the NAND is seemingly very sensitive to temperature in respects to its lifetime.

    In other words: If you use the modern low price SSD's (TLC chips), then it seems best to keep them cool.
    Install them in a place away from heat I would say, better to be safe than sorry.
