Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
A closer look at fresh versus used SSD performance - A closer look at fresh versus used SSD performance
Wed, May 27 2009 | 5:18PM | PermaLink Feedback?
Many would argue solid-state drives are the future of PC storage, but some of today's SSDs apparently aren't as resilient as one might expect. Drives based on Indilinx's "Barefoot" IDX110M00-LC controller are a case in point. In a recent SSD round-up, we discovered that although Barefoot-based OCZ Vertex and Super Talent UltraDrive ME drives excelled in synthetic tests like HD Tach and IOMeter, they suffered from surprisingly poor real-world write and file copy performance. Our results were consistent and repeatable within the confines of our test environment, so we probed deeper in an attempt determine the true nature of the issue.

G.Skill Falcon II 64GB SSD Review - G.Skill Falcon II 64GB SSD Review
Sun, July 18 2010 | 9:02AM | PermaLink Feedback?
If I can describe the G.Skill Falcon II in one word, I would have to go with "fast" because this drive performs extremely well, especially when compared to the 5400RPM drive I am used to. With read and write speeds upwards of 150 MB/s, everything just feels so much snappier. Programs seem to open almost instantly, file transfers take less time, and my old Dell XPS m1330 laptop has become very snappy and feels like new again. So what's the catch? There is only one and that is the price that you will have to pay for this level of performance: over $2 per gigabyte of storage as compared to a few cents per gigabyte for conventional magnetic hard drives.
