Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Intel's X25-E 32GB SSD - Intel's X25-E 32GB SSD
Thu, December 18 2008 | 3:35PM | PermaLink Feedback?
While still very quick even with the write speeds halved, this certainly takes a lot away from the X25-E, especially in regards to the possibility of using it as a boot partition. While the first run through writing to the disk would be very quick indeed, reusing hard drive space nullifies the huge write speed performance advantage, making the X25-E somewhat of a disappointment, especially considering its £505 price tag. The capacity itself is also a real sticking point – these days 32GB is nothing in terms of storage, and was barely enough space to install Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit and Crysis. While we love the idea of a fast writing, fast reading drive for use as a boot drive, it needs to actually be able to fit more than the operating system onto it to make it a realistic option.
