As with my other disk drive purchases for the new test farm systems this week, my reason for choosing this drive was mainly the low price point and having not dealt previously with any SanDisk solid-state storage drives.

The drives that the SanDisk SDSSDP-064G-G25 were compared to under Ubuntu 13.10 x86_64 with the Linux 3.13 kernel and cleanly formatted EXT4 file-systems with stock mount options included:

Seagate ST3320620AS - A Serial ATA 2.0 320GB HDD with 16MB cache.
Western Digital WD1600JS-00M - A Serial ATA 2.0 160GB HDD with 8MB of cache.
Western Digital WD1500HLHX-0 VelociRaptor - The SATA 3.0 150GB enterprise-grade SATA HDD that spins at 10,000 RPM and has a 32MB cache.
Western Digital WD10EARS-00M - A 1TB Western Digital Caviar Green hard drive that spins at 5400RPM.
OCZ Solid 2 - A 60GB Serial ATA 2.0 SSD with MLC memory.
OCZ Vertex 2 - A 60GB Serial ATA 2.0 MLC SSD.
OCZ Vertex 3 - A high-end OCZ Vertex 3 Serial ATA 3.0 SSD with 240GB capacity.
KINGSTON SV300S3 - The Kingston SSDNow V300 Serial ATA 3.0 120GB SSD.
Western Digital WD10EZEX - A 1TB SATA 3.0 7200RPM HDD priced at around $60 USD and with a 64MB cache.
Samsung 840 EVO MZ-7TE120BW SSD - A Serial ATA 3.0 Samsung SLC SSD with 120GB of storage.

The system details:

All benchmarking was handled via the Phoronix Test Suite. If you want to see how your system's performing against these various SATA HDDs and SSDs, simply install the Phoronix Test Suite and run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1401244-PL-SSDSANDIS66.
