Super Talent UltraDrive ME SSD FTM28GX25H
Featured Reviews: Storage

Performance enthusiasts have been keeping notes on SSD technology for a while now, and until recently the price and performance of Solid State Drives were not within reach for casual consumers. SSD products are quickly moving mainstream, and former marketing points like power consumption is now the least impressive of all benefits a Solid State Drive delivers. The real payoff is in the practically instant response time and high-performance throughput. Capacity and stuttering were once the only problems keeping SSDs from replacing HDDs, but now it's just capacity. Quick to solve that problem, Super Talent now offers their 512GB MasterDrive RX SSD which provides capacity matched to performance.

The Super Talent UltraDrive ME adds 64MB of Elpida DRAM to the buffer has permanently solved stuttering problems, making raw performance the last bottleneck. An Indilinx 'Barefoot' internal controller commands the bank of Samsung K9HCG08U1M DRAM modules, allowing the UltraDrive ME SSD to offer an impressive capacity with top-speed performance. Benchmark Reviews tests the reaction time and bandwidth performance for the FTM28GX25H 128GB model against over two dozen other products in this article.

OCZ Vertex EX SLC SSD OCZSSD2-1VTXEX120G
Featured Reviews: Storage

There are very few products that grab enthusiast attention like SSDs have. OCZ has created a well-deserved buzz around the industry since they launched their Core II, Apex, and Vertex multi-layer cell SSD products for retail consumers. Now they've gone one step further, and designed a SLC SSD for the demanding enterprise server segment. Benchmark Reviews welcomes the OCZ Vertex EX SSD OCZSSD2-1VTXEX120G into the ranks, and our bandwidth performance tests compare the Vertex EX to several other SSDs occupying the high-end market.

OCZ Vertex SSD RAID-0 Performance
Featured Reviews: Storage

Lower power consumption and heat output are the least impressive benefits of Solid State Drives. The real payoff is in the practically instant response time and high-performance throughput. Once SSDs could outperform their HDD counterpart, it was all about price and capacity. Adding up to 64MB of Elpida DRAM to the buffer has permanently solved stuttering problems, making raw performance the last bottleneck. An Indilinx 'Barefoot' internal controller commands the bank of Samsung K9HCG08U1M DRAM modules, allowing a single OCZ Vertex SSD to offer impressive capacity with unmatched performance. But what if we put two Vertex SSDs into a striped RAID-0 array? Benchmark Reviews tests the speed and bandwidth of two OCZSSD2-1VTX120G SSDs against the fastest storage products on the planet in this OCZ Vertex SSD RAID-0 performance article.

ACARD ANS-9010 DDR2 SATA RAM-Drive
Featured Reviews: Storage

The ACARD ANS-9010 is a solid state SATA RAM-Drive made of several DDR2 memory modules. A RAM-Disk allows for faster transfer speeds than traditional IDE/SATA hard drives and USB/eSATA flash drives. RAM-Disks offer a speedy random access rate and shorter access time, and are best-suited for graphic designers and database systems. The ACARD ANS-9010 supports an Compact Flash (CF) slot for data backup and restoration to prevent data loss. In this article Benchmark Reviews tests the performance of the ACARD ANS-9010 RAM-Disk against the fastest SSDs on the market today.

G.Skill Titan 128GB SATA SSD FM-25S2S-128GBT1
Featured Reviews: Storage

For the past several years, G.Skill has built a reputation for offering premium-grade products at economy-level pricing. Similar to their competition, G.Skill offers enthusiast products in several different markets. The brand name has been built on a solid history of quality system memory product lines, and not long ago they introduced the very impressive G.Skill FM-25S2S-64GB SATA-II MLC SSD.

Using a pair of JMicron JMF602B SSD controllers to organize two banks of Samsung K9HCG08U1M DRAM modules into a JMB390 controller, the new G.Skill Titan SSD offers an impressive capacity with internal RAID-0 performance to subdue stuttering. Benchmark Reviews tests the performance of the G.Skill Titan 128GB SATA SSD FM-25S2S-128GBT1 against over two dozen other products in this article, including its twin brother, the OCZ Apex.

ASUS BC-06B1ST Blu-Ray Disc Optical Combo Drive
Featured Reviews: Storage

It wasn't more than a few months ago that Benchmark Reviews tested the ASUS BC-1205PT Blu-ray Drive, which was proven to be a future-proof asset with the format war recently ended in favor of BD media. But sometimes technology isn't adopted quite as fast as we might think, because in the age of Blu-ray there are people out there who still haven't made the transition into a DVD-burner. Unlike CDs and DVDs, Blu-ray Disc isn't in every household, and since music and movies seem to work perfectly well on the older platforms there might not be any real need for such a premium storage device.

In this article, we do away with the benchmark tests and take a subjective look at the ASUS BC-06B1ST Blu-ray disc optical combo drive. After all, there aren't really very many BD-drives on the market to begin with for there to be a worth-while comparison. Sure, we could create a few dual-layer DVD coasters to see how fast that happens, but in the end it doesn't concentrate on the primary features a SATA Blu-ray drive can offer. Benchmark Reviews tests the functionality and explores the feature set offered by the ASUS BC-06B1ST Blu-ray combo drive.

Intel X25-M SATA 80GB MLC SSD
Featured Reviews: Storage

In early September, 2008 Intel released their mainstream series of solid state drives. In its initial offfering Intel brought two drives to market, the X18-M and the X25-M built respectively on the 1.8" and 2.5" form factors. The initial capacity of these drives was 80 GB and recently a 160 GB version was released. Solid State Drives are rapidly changing the computing landscape, and many enthusiasts are using SSD technology in their primary systems to help boost performance. Benchmark Reviews has tested nearly all of the products available to the retail market in this sector, and several have done quite well while others fall flat. It used to be that performance was the largest hurdle for mass storage NAND Solid State Drives, followed by stability, and later price. In this review, we will give a thorough overview as well as benchmark test the linear bandwidth performance of the Intel X25-M 80 GB SSDSA2MH080G15E solid state SATA drive and compares it against the top competition.
