    Joshua Adams or Jason Gerend, could you explain the hatred for SanDISK? I am putting together a purchase for myself with dataON & some sandisk optimus SSDs, but now am hesitant based on your comments in this video. Any way you can expand on what your personal experiences with them were?


    Thanks!

    @Christopher Vanderlinden: Sorry for the misunderstanding! We don't remember singling out SanDisk - we recommend working with your Storage Spaces solution vendor – in this case DataOn – for disks and firmware that they've tested and support.

    We have had some huge performance problems with SSD's based on SANDisk Firmware/components (some other vendors use the same with their own branding) and are thus avoiding them.

    Great session Jason and Joshua!  When will you publish the excel file?
