Seven-Way Budget Solid State Drive Roundup
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
TechSpot have tested and compared seven sub-$150 solid state drives from A-DATA, Intel, Kingston, and OCZ.
Here's an excerpt:
"This leaves us with the OCZ Vertex 2 40GB, Intel X25-V 40GB and Kingston SNV425-S2 64GB. In terms of performance the OCZ Vertex 2 40GB is top dog though at $3.10 per gigabyte it is also expensive. The Vertex 2 40GB does appear to perform better than the Intel drive as measured in synthetic tests but this was not made evident in our real-world testing.
The ultimate value SSD is definitely the Kingston SNV425-S2 64GB which provides 60% more storage than the Vertex 2 40GB for the same price. Again like the X25-V 40GB, the SNV425-S2 64GB provided very strong real-world performance but its strongest attribute is its price."
If you have a tight budget but want to experience the wonderful world of SSDs, this is an article worth looking at.
