Replace my C300 180GB with a SanDisk Ultra Plus 256GB?

Recommended Posts

I'm planning on replacing my 180GB (C300) SSD with a 256GB SSD drive.

Currently the Sandisk Ultra plus 256GB is on sale for $110.

Is the ultra Plus comparable performance wise with other 256GB SSDs?

The Ultra Plus is pretty pedestrian comparatively. Nothing wrong with it, but it's not in the top tier performance-wise. At that price point it's hard to argue, though the EVO might be worth the extra $20 depending on where you can find it these days. The EVO and m500 are routinely available for .45-.50/GB.

Now thinking of holding out for the price to drop on the 500GB SSDs.

As some 250GB SSDs are going for under $100 (on sale), i would assume some of the 500GBs SSDs would drop below $200.

I'd say no for most use cases. You've waited long enough that you might even get another option next week ;)

Which sounds familiar...

Guess I can wait a week (maybe).

If nothing else there may end up being more pricing pressure, which is great for consumers in your spot.
