Crucial Adrenaline 50GB Solid State Cache Review @ circuitREMIX - Crucial Adrenaline 50GB Solid State Cache Review @ circuitREMIX

While SSDs make for extremely attractive purchases from a performance point of view, they can be relatively pricy, especially when compared to the cost-per-gigabyte of traditional hard drives. The capacity of entry level SSDs in the lower price range are also mostly made up of 60-64GB, which are too small to use as an application and OS drive for many users. So while we`re in this transitional phase, a new class of interim devices have cropped up in the market, solid state cache drives. These solutions pair up small solid state drives with caching software, and provides users with the performance benefit of an SSD while maintaining the capacity of a hard drive. Today, we`re looking at Crucial`s solid state cache drive, the Adrenaline. It combines a 50GB Crucial m4 drive with NVELO`s Dataplex caching software in a package that comes in at under $100."
