Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
G.Skill Titan 256GB SSD - G.Skill Titan 256GB SSD
Mon, February 16 2009 | 4:03PM | PermaLink Feedback?
Frankly we’re amazed by how quickly the SSD market is moving forwards and a drive that just a few months ago was a unappealing has now, though some clever engineering, been turned into an absolute star performer that’s able to match and for the most part better a drive that, just a month ago, was one of the best available. Will 2009 be the year of the SSD? If the Titan is anything to go by, it certainly looks like it! However, it’s also something of a warning for the future – just how much faster and larger will SSDs get in the next three months, let alone a year? The investment of $500 into an SSD is a big one, and while we’re unashamedly excited by the technology and the benefits it might offer (especially as Windows 7 is being optimised to better take advantage of SSDs), we can’t help but advise caution. Looking at past emergences of new technologies early adopters rarely get the best deal (or even a fair one, eh, HD DVD owners?) and while the Titan is both an excellent performer and fairly spacious, it won’t be very long before another SSD arrives to stake its claim.
