Pny cs1211 is lowest yet for mlc. Best value imo. Its a discontinued line but to me that raises value than it does decrease (bc could be not profitable for company as they shift to tlc).

Typo in the detail text, the 240gb SSD is $54.99, not $34.99. Still looks like a good deal though.

How is 1211 compared to Sandisk ssd plus? There are very few reviews on 1211. Btw, optima is not 1211. You can get ssd plus 240gb for $52 on jet.com

not sure on performance specs vs the ssd plus. However I can offer that I have received better support from PNY than Sandisk in relation to drives.

Also I chatted with one of the PNY engineers at a developers conference a bit ago when this line was rolling out, i was impressed with their knowledge and the level of care they put into even their lower lines. for those reasons i'd definitely roll with the PNY.

that said i do run sandisk extremes in some of my higher performance systems.

Adding to its slightly higher published seq write speeds and lower price I'd go with the Sandisk for the inclusion of the SSD Dashboard software. The last time I checked the PNY Drive Utility only provided a rather primitive firmware checker.

I do prefer the hefty heat sync feel on the PNY CS series over the cheapo plastic Sandisk builds and use my CS1111 for Linux so the Dashboard option is not a factor.

Another option if you have a Microcenter is the OCZ Arc 100 240GB http://www.microcenter.com/produc...5SAT3-240G

It's an Indilix/19nm Toshiba MLC combo. It's currently on sale for $59.99 and there is a RMN coupon for $5 off $30.

Looking for a low end SSD I found this one to be quite impressive for its write endurance, SSD utility, and performance.

Solid recommendation for about the same price as the PNY. I have 4 x 240 GB OCZ ARC 100's in my house from the TigerDirect days. I'm also fortunate enough to have a MicroCenter, but adding on ~9% tax kind of puts a sting on many deals.

For those interested, these storage deals are also available:

CS1111/CS1211 vs CS2111 (this is nice to describe the audience the product is ideal for):
https://www.pny.com/file%20librar...arison.pdf

CS1211 primary source:
https://www.pny.com/File%20Librar...CS1211.pdf

Sandisk SSD Plus (not sure if primary):
http://www.ingrammicro.de/pdf/M221844.pdf

Quick summary. Looks like the sequential write speed is up to 180MB/s for 120gb or 350MB/s for 240gb (for SSD Plus). By contrast it's up to 400MB/s with the PNY. Note for both PNY and Sandisk Plus it's "up to" but for TLC memory component that usually means they may have cached the TLC drive with SLC emulation (think Sandisk SSD Plus is TLC but not 100%). In the case for MLC (i.e. PNY), not sure if "up to" has any meaningful difference than TLC but my unscientific gut says its better to stick with MLC. Its analogous to a solid state hybrid drive with 5400rpm vs a hdd 7200rpm.. What u deem faster depends on context (general operation vs massive data transfer). Also note that for the SSD Plus they did not describe the random read/write speed (iops). I think this is where the SSD Plus is vague. In regards to the sequential read speed is the same for both at 520MB/s.

Unfortunately there are no reviews where somebody pulled the CS1211 apart so we don't really know the content inside or how how it compares. For me, being a dilettante it was PNY, OCZ Arc, or Crucial BX100 (ie choosing MLC) in the price range of $50-$60 for 240gb or $90-$99 for 480Gb. Until SSD becomes cheaper on a grand scale that's my minimum to get by for now.

Correction: Sandisk SSD Plus is MLC.

Wrong. [Regarding SSD Plus memory component: MLC vs TLC]

Adding to its slightly higher published seq write speeds...
Nice counter. Thanks for catching my mistake regarding memory component for Sandisk SSD Plus. Caught me by surprise bc normally I associate Sandisk with TLC. Although it appears to have slightly lower published sequential write speed (esp for 120gb) compared to PNY CS1211. Nonetheless I'll include Sandisk SSD Plus in my desirable list now.
