200gb vertex le ssd

I have three of these drives; they all post similar speed benchmarks. But... If you update the firmware to the latest version, 1.11, expect to see a POST error message about "smartdrive failure" which is strange because the release notes suggest that...

Buffalo MicroStation Internal SSD SHD-NSUH

By hard-disk standards the Buffalo MicroStation Internal SSD Drive is quite quick, although it was less confident in command-queued tasks with a raft of small files. The USB port could be handy if you plan to whisk the drive in and out of your PC on a...

Elgato Thunderbolt 120 GB Solid State Drive (10024012)

I don't see that big of a speed difference than my USB 2.0 external HD I use. Drive says hot all the time even if the computer is sleeping. Thats not normal for a drive to be that warm all the time. The drive came with a cord so I spent $30 on a...

32GB Solid State Drive (Ultra ATA/66)

This isn't the world's fastest drive by any means, but if you have a notebook with a 1.8" drive, and you have the money, you're nuts if you don't try this.

We weren't sure what to expect when the Falcon arrived, but after seeing it up close and in action, we can say we are impressed. Very impressed. In terms of performance, the G.Skill Falcon doesn't exhibit any stuttering issues previously known to...

It was working perfectly (last night) until it was not (this morning it's a door stop). Verfied that it is in fact the drive. Wish I'd purchased a standard hard drive-- now I'm out the cost of this drive plus a replacement (has to be a standard hard...
