I am pretty sure that this is a media sample pack rather than actual- or maybe I am wrong. Nevertheless this is how I’ve received it. SanDisk_Extreme_II_240GB_0001

SanDisk_Extreme_II_240GB_0007 The entire packaging was way too light for comfort when I received it from the courier service. The plastic casing is the main reason why this drive is very light. The specifications are as follows:

  • Available capacities: 120 GB, 240 GB and 480 GB**
  • Dimensions: 2.75 x 3.96 x 0.28 in. (69.85mm x 100.5mm x 7.0 mm)
  • Operating temperature: 32ºF to 158ºF (0ºC to 70 ºC)
  • Storage temperature: -67ºF to 185ºF (-55ºC to 85ºC)
  • Interface: SATA Revision 3.0 (6 Gbit/s)
  • Shock: Resistant up to 1500 G @ 0.5 m/sec
  • Vibration (Operating/Non-operating) : 5 gRMS, 10-2000 HZ / 4.9 gRMS, 7-800 HZ
  • Power Consumption (active): 0.22w
  • Support: Five-year limited warranty in the US; five-year warranty elsewhere

SanDisk_Extreme_II_240GB_0012 This drive comes with 5 years warranty period! Very much appreciated. This is a 7mm thick 2.5” drive, so you can install this on your Ultrabook/notebook with 7mm thick drive cage. This drive didn’t come with a bracket like in SanDisk Ultra Plus which allows you to easily install in laptops with 9.5mm thick HDD cage, but then again remember this is most likely not a retail pack.

SanDisk however did point out that there are 2 packs of the Extreme II (just like others who have either standalone or desktop upgrade kit versions) image image SanDisk_Extreme_II_240GB_CDI1 Moving on…
