As Anand said in the Extreme II review, SanDisk has picked an excellent balance of IO consistency and peak performance, resulting in high performance regardless of the workload.

Out of the high performance SSDs, the Extreme Pro is definitely the most power efficient because it supports DevSLP and slumber states, yet the load power consumption is very low too.

In The News From around the web

It appears SanDisk is betting that its target users will either replace the drive within a few years or the endurance limit will be hit after the warranty runs out, meaning that the 10-year warranty may not actually add any concrete value to the end-user.
Right now there are no high performance client SSDs with proper encryption support, and I think that's a niche SanDisk should have taken onboard.
