Solid State Drive Roundup  - Solid State Drive Roundup
Thu, Jan 19 2012 | 4:00PM | Filed under: Hard Drives| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

Now that we're a few generations into the SSD product race, it's easy to get confused as to which SSD you should choose, given the wide variety of products that are available. In the traditional hard drive market, the number of major manufacturers can be counted with your fingers. But on the SSD front, there are a huge number of brands available. Not only that, many brands carry multiple SSD product lines. The main differentiating factors between different SSDs on the market can be attributed to a handful of elements: controller technology, memory configuration, firmware customization and tweaking and levels of customer support. The selection of drives we'll be looking at are Crucial's m4, Kingston's HyperX, OCZ's Vertex 3 and Other World Computing's Mercury Electra 6G. These drives provide a good representation of the more popular configuration sets of current generation controllers and memory configuration.
