  • Excerpt: We’re not mad. We’re just disappointed. When Plextor announced in February that it, too, was entering the SSD market, we were cautiously optimistic. After all, more competition is always a good thing and Plextor wouldn’t put out a subpar product just to try to capitalize on a trend—would it?
  • Pros: Cheap; ships with a copy of Acronis True Image.
  • Cons: Doesn't support the TRIM command; average sustained writes were a mere 50MB/s.

  • Conclusion: Garbage Collection: While SSD's offer many benefits, there are some downsides to using flash memory. One of the biggest issues people run into is performance degradation. Over time, an SSD will run out of fresh blocks and will have to write over data the file system has marked as deleted. This procedure is very complicated and can slow an SSD's write speeds considerably. To fix this problem, most manufacturers have added TRIM support to their SSDs.
  • Pros: 128GB capacity, Well constructed aluminum casing, 64MB on-board cache, Low power consumption, Supports S.M.A.R.T., NCQ and wear leveling, Includes Acronis True Image, 3 year warranty
  • Cons: Does not support TRIM, Garbage collection does not work as well as advertised, Pricey

  • Summary: HD Tune Pro is a relatively new benchmark for us here at BCCHardware as we don't typically do a lot of storage reviews.  This benchmark now allows random read and write tests to be performed, and the results are displayed on a very handy chart.  HDTune tests 512 byte, 4KB, 64KB, 1MB and Random sizes of data over the disk.  The results displayed below show total operations per second as well as average access time and average speed.
  • Pros: Well designed/finished drive, 64MB cache keeps response time low., Drive performs consistently if NAND is "clean" or "dirty", Exceeds rated read performance, Acronis True Image is handy for system migration
  • Cons: Priced same as a high-performance drive, 3 year warranty seems weak compared to other 5 year & 10 year warranties, Doesn't reach rated write speed in any tests
