Introduction

We’ve said for quite some time that the biggest performance increase you’ll see in a system upgrade these days it moving to a Solid State Drive. The improvements of an SSD, in our opinion, are nothing short of astounding. So scintillating is the difference that you’ll wonder how you ever survived without one.

As more consumers move to SSDs, the choices are many in terms of models and capacities. If you have need of a larger drive capacity, then budget certainly becomes a consideration for those who want something affordable without having to compromise performance. Choosing a SandForce-based SSD is a safe bet for most consumers, as these drives offer a strong blend of speed and affordability. There are many on the market, and today we’re looking at one from VisionTek, the GoDrive 480GB.

With a larger capacity to suit those with such needs, and coming with a very attractive price tag of $400, the VisionTek GoDrive 480GB looks rather enticing. But what about performance? Can this SSD put up numbers worthy of the price? Let’s find out.
