We were impressed with the performance on this drive, and even though it was not able to beat the Intel SSD 335 Series which gave transfer speeds of 375 MB/s on SATA 6 Gbps interface, the score of 353 MB/s is not far behind. Just
like SanDisk Extreme, Ultra Plus too comes with a SATA 6 Gbps interface which is backward compatible with the SATA 3 Gbps interface, present in older systems. Besides performance, the other aspect where Ultra Plus is better than Extreme is in the stated power consumption in active state. While the Extreme consumes 0.6 W, the Ultra Plus consumes a mere 0.12 W.

The Ultra Plus line consists of SSDs of three different sizes: 64, 128, and 256 GB, and the company markets this series for those who work on read-intensive applications like photo and video editors, music-production software, and other such multimedia applications. The other notable feature of this drive is that it supports TRIM functionality, which results in fewer writes to the flash, reducing write amplification and increasing drive life.
