    Due out June 12, 2014
    SanDisk Extreme PRO Solid State Drives (SSD)

    240GB, 480GB and 960GB. That's right a 1TB

    What's the 30% OP math tilleroftheearth or RCB? :p

    But get this, 10 year warranty!

    NewEgg has the 960GB priced at $600 480GB at $370 and the 240GB at $190 for pre-order.
    Newegg.com - SanDisk/Internal SSDs


    Performance
    240GB
    Seq. Read 550 MB/s
    Seq. Write 520 MB/s
    Rnd. Read 100K IOPS
    Rnd. Write 90K IOPS

    480GB & 960GB
    Seq. Read 550 MB/s
    Seq. Write 520 MB/s
    Rnd. Read 100K IOPS
    Rnd. Write 90K IOPS

    Advertised Sequential R/W and IOPS are higher than SEII

    I can guess who the 500GB competitor is. :D

    Ah but does Sandisk shoot their SSDs with high energy particles from a particle accelerator? :p

    According to their graph no OP should be required.

    I think the 480GB SE II just dropped to $229.99 on amazon.

    Is failure due to high write to the flash exempt from the warranty, 10 years is a long time, how long does mlc flash memory last.

    With those sizes they're probably already overprovisioned, looks like by 6% if the actual NAND sizes are the typical 256, 512, and 1024 GB. Wonder why they skipped the 750 GB class?

    10 year warranty is a great idea, based on standard desktop use cases and MLC NAND endurance there should be no issues with write lifetime during that time. Still like to see the fine print, I'm assuming there's a clause in there to protect them from someone who throws an excessive amount of writes at the thing. It does say the warranty is limited, but I couldn't find the text of if.

    Probably too little demand for it. It appears that Samsung has quietly dropped the 750 GB 840 EVO while they continue to sell the 500 GB and 1 TB versions.

    Balderdash.

    You must continue to over provision any and all SSDs you own. To 90%, or more if possible. Real works demands it.

    My Plextor 512gb ssd does not use over provisioning it formats to 476gb free off the 512gb that difference is just for the FAT right?

    Also the Plextor SSD app does not offer an over provisioning option.

    No, that's just the decimal to binary conversion.

    512000000000 bytes / 1073741824 binary bytes ~ 476.8GB

    And you can OP by just creating a partition then deleting the partition using disk manager or disk part command or your favorite partition manager.
