12 June 2011
  • Excerpt: HDTune is a great software program which covers all areas of our testing and does a great job of showing how capable this drive truly is. The battery of HDTune tests seem to show this drive as any other of the new SF-2281 controlled SSDs which is that of an upper tier drive.
