Introduction

We’ve said for quite some time that the biggest performance increase you’ll see in a system upgrade these days is by moving to a Solid State Drive for your operating system, rather than running a traditional plattered hard 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. However, we also want smaller form factors these days as well, and for those who are productivity-oriented and need a notebook rather than a tablet, and media lovers who want a killer HTPC setup, smaller is simply better.

One option is to choose 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, but today we’re looking at one from VisionTek that is unique in its low profile for those who need something primarily for a notebook or HTPC: the GoDrive 7mm 240GB.

Let’s take a closer look at the VisionTek GoDrive 7mm 240GB SSD and see if it packs a punch for its small size.
