Conclusion: Looking back through the results that we saw with the Adrenaline kit, I’m astonished to see that the lesser speed of the mechanical drive barely held things back and this is proof towards the caching concept. Right back at the start of the review I mentioned how people are stuck in the void where they want a large capacity drive but with the super fast speeds of a solid state drive and for the most part this wasn’t possible.
Conclusion: In the case of the hardware we still get the same great Crucial build quality with solid casing and quality Micron/Marvell parts inside. The Dataplex software has remained essentially the same on the front end and that too is good as it therefore remains simple to install and use, though we would change the term Target Drive to "source drive" or "Windows drive" in the installer to make things a little clearer for novice users.
Excerpt: The SSD market has really taken off recently with increasingly faster drives with higher capacities being released all of the time. There has been one main problem with the entire SSD market since the beginning though, and that is cost. Even with prices continually dropping to slightly more reasonable levels, there are only a small handful of drives available for the $1 per GB price range.
