Corsair Accelerator 60GB Solid State Drive Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
Hardware Canucks have reviewed the budget friendly Corsair Accelerator 60GB Caching SSD, a companion solid state drive which is optimized for caching applications in conjunction with a standard HDD.
Let's see what they had to say:
"Admittedly, consumers who are seriously considering a software-based hybrid storage solution are typically not going to be enthusiasts with cutting-edge computer systems. Rather, theyre are going to be on a tight budget and simply looking for a relatively painless way to boost the responsiveness of their aging systems. From this perspective, the Corsair Accelerator is a decent solution.
By and large, any computer purchased more than a year or two ago does not have SATA 3 ports, so SATA 2 is still the de-facto standard. This makes using a SATA 3-based SSD overkill at best and a waste of resources at worst. Instead of wasting limited resources on an SF-2281 controller, Corsair opted for the less costlyand slower performingSF-2181 controller."
This seems like another a good addition to Corsairs existing line of SandForce based drives. Though for about the same you can get an OCZ Synapse which uses a faster SATA 3 SSD with greater over-provisioning.
