Mtron MOBI 3500 SLC SSD MSD-SATA3535-064
Featured Reviews: Storage

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 do 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 article, we benchmark test the linear bandwidth performance of the Mtron MOBI 3500 3.5-Inch SSD MSD-SATA3535-064 and compares it against the top competition.

Back in November 2007, after experiencing the SuperComputing Conference SC07, finding Solid State Drives on sale anywhere was a real challenge. One year later, and online stores are offering dozens of SSD models at reasonable prices. 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 do well while others fall flat. It used to be that performance was the largest hurdle for SSD's, followed by stability, and later price. In this article, we benchmark test bandwidth performance on the G.Skill FM-25S2S-64GB SATA-II MLC mass storage NAND Solid State Drive and compare it against the top competition.

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 do well while other come up flat. It used to be that performance was the largest hurdle, but now we're seeing that stability is a major factor. In this article, we test bandwidth performance on the Patriot Warp v2 128GB SATA-II SSD PE128GS25SSDR and compare it against the competition.

Silicon Power 32GB SLC SATA-II SSD
Featured Reviews: Storage

Silicon Power is a rather unknown player in the North American marketplace, despite having numerous products available to the retail market. Not very long ago, Benchmark Reviews tested the first-generation Silicon Power SATA SSD. In that article we found ourselves torn between performance that left some room for improvement, and the press release announcement that Silicon Power had a new SATA-II SSD product ready to launch. As fortune would have it, we didn't have to wait very long to see if the marketing hype was true. In this article, the Silicon Power 32GB SLC SATA-II SSD SP032GBSSD750S25 receives benchmark testing and gets compared against a dozen other high-performance Solid State Drives.

Thermaltake Blacx Docking Station N0028USU
Featured Reviews: Storage

Every once in awhile a product comes along that makes you wonder why someone hadn't thought of it earlier. A product that makes so much sense yet is elegant in its simplicity. Today Benchmark Reviews takes a look at one such product, the Thermaltake BlacX. The BlacX is basically a very simple SATA to USB 2.0 adapter. What sets the BlacX apart from the typical cable style adapter is the docking station like design.

Mtron Pro 7500 32GB SATA-II SSD MSP-SATA7525
Featured Reviews: Storage

Solid State Drives have become a subject of keen familiarity for me over the past year. After testing more than a dozen SSDs, I have watched the industry opinion of these cutting-edge products sway from luxury item to performance hardware necessity. While it cannot be denied that SSDs are still a pricey gadget best suited for the affluent enthusiast, there have been so many new developments that now cost is sharply on the decline while performance is continually rising. With prices being much more affordable, and performance having surpassed the best HDD products long ago, it all boils down to a good price-to-performance ratio. In this article Benchmark Reviews tests the premium MSP-SATA7525 SATA-II SSD from Mtron, a company that has become the grandfather of Solid State Drives. We dispel the myths associates with SSD products, and prove that Intel's ICH10 controller is still not ready for Solid State Drive performance.

SilverStone SST-TS01B RFID External Drive Kit
Featured Reviews: Storage

External HDD Enclosures are plentiful and cheap these days. It's tough for a manufacturer to differentiate its products in the marketplace, and the competition on price is never-ending. Silverstone Technology has introduced a new product that is completely unique in the market, with a security system that you won't see anywhere else. Instead of relying on passwords to allow access to the encrypted data on the HDD, the SilverStone SST-TS01B uses a small RFID "Key" to identify an authorized user. This is not new technology, it's in commercial use in other markets, but it's the first time I've seen it used to unlock an encrypted HDD.

Benchmark Reviews has looked at some HDD enclosures in the past and they have all done what they were intended to do, but in my mind, there was something missing. None of them really stood out, in terms of features or performance. None of them said, "BUY ME" in no uncertain terms. This one does. Let's see how it performs on the bench and in daily use.

Super Talent MasterDrive MX 60 GB SATA-II SSD
Featured Reviews: Storage

Super Talent is very well known for their enthusiast-grade system memory kits, such as PC3-14400 DDR3 1800MHz ProjectX kit we reviewed several months back. So when a product such as Solid State Drives (SSD's) arrived to market, it makes perfect sense to build off of their existing reputation to introduce new high-performance storage devices. The Super Talent MasterDrive MX is an example of this, which features SATA-II controller architecture and high capacities. Early SSD products offered very small capacity, leaving them out of reach for primary drive usage. Super Talent solves this problem, and introduces the 60 GB FTM60GK25H. Benchmark Reviews tests the MasterDrive MX against a large collection of competitor SSDs in this article.
