Four-Way SSD Round-Up, OCZ, Super Talent, Mtron

Four-Way SSD Round-Up, OCZ, Super Talent, Mtron

Solid State Drive technology is set to turn the storage industry on its ear; there is little doubt of this.  When you consider the intrinsic benefits of anything built on solid state technology versus anything mechanical, it doesn't take a degree in physics to understand the obvious advantages. 

On the following pages, we thought we'd level-set the features, performance and pricing landscape for you with respect to the current state of SSDs.  Today, we have a look at four different SSD offerings, two from OCZ, one from Mtron and another from Super Talent.  Is a Solid State Disk in your future?  We'll try to help you answer that question in this full performance evaluation and showcase.

I have to say, I expected a far more pronounced difference between the SSDs power consumption and that of the VelociRaptor. Considering the minuscule difference in power consumption, I would assume that the operating temperatures are also fairly similar.

Nice Round-Up HH. I am really looking forward to seeing how the new 256GB Samsung MLC SSD and Intel's upcoming offerings perform.

Nice for a notebook 32gb or netbook perhaps ... but I guess I cannot see myself building my 4TB HD media server/PVR using them in a raid set could buy a house for less in some areas.

Yeah but price will come down. They are selling it to the rich to fund development. We will get the rewards in the end.

Heya MMC and welcome!

Yeah, they're still a bit pricey but it's only a matter of time before they get in line competing technology.
