Seagate 600 Series 480GB (7mm)

Just a few years ago, it seemed unlikely that Seagate would ever release an SSD. The company's outspoken CEO, Bill Watkins, roundly dismissed solid state drives in 2008 and 2009, even going so far as to imply Seagate would file lawsuits against upstart...

Plextor M5 Pro Series (PX-128M5P,PX-256M5P,PX-512M5P)

The Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme is a speedy drive and we found it second only to the Samsung 840 Pro. But at a price of Rs 19,500, it comes at a cost per GB of Rs 81.9 which is higher than that for the Samsung 840 Pro which is retailing for around Rs 16,000....

Intel X25-M Mainstream Solid State Drive

The X25-M remains a rock-solid choice for SSDs, and its read speeds and random-write response times are second to none. But in sustained-write speeds, it’s no match for the Patriot Torqx and its peers. But hey, the 160GB X25-M is $.10/GB cheaper than...
