This new family of solid-state drives contains models ranging from 120 GB to 960 GB and features sequential read speeds of up to 550 MB/s, while write speeds can reach 500 MB/s.

SanDisk revealed the Ultra II family of solid-state drives earlier today, more than three years after they introduced the first Ultra generation. According to the official press release, the Ultra II "is designed to deliver a cost-effective and easy upgrade solution for PC owners looking to improve performance, battery life, and power efficiency."

These new drives from SanDisk are based on X3 NAND Flash technology and feature nCache 2.0, which optimizes speed and endurance. Sequential read speeds can reach 550 MB/s, while the SanDisk Ultra II drives offer excellent write speeds as well, up to 500 MB/s.

The SSD Dashboard software suite companion has support for 17 languages and includes features like cloning via Apricorn's EZ GIG IV, theft recovery from Absolute Software, as well as protection from malware provided by Trend Micro Titanium Antivirus+

The SanDisk Ultra II family comes with 3-year limited warranty and will hit the stores next month. These are the capacities available and their prices - 120 GB ($79.99 USD), 240 GB ($114.99 USD), 480 GB ($219.99 USD) and 960 GB ($429.99 USD).

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
