Introduction

With SSD prices getting lower in recent months, more and more people are making the switch to the SSD platform. So it’s not entirely surprising to see VisionTek moving into the SSD market. While VisionTek has been around for years and are very well known for making ATI/AMD graphic cards, the company appears to be jumping on the SSD bandwagon with their Racer Series of SSDs.

We recently had the opportunity to look at another Racer Series SSD from VisionTek. This time we have the 480GB version on the bench, and it’s the largest capacity drive in the Racer series. The last time we tested a Racer Series SSD it did not disappoint, and we expect this big 480GB model to rip through data as well.

The VisionTek Racer series SSDs have featured the latest SandForce SF-2281 Controller and impressive Toshiba Toggle MCL NAND. This should translate into big numbers, but we will have to get it on the bench and see.

Let’s dive in.

    Good review Norman. This is a nice drive even if it does cost a bit much. I found it online for $689.00 with free shipping. Here: http://www.hookbag.com/product/H3C06QTRJ/

    Maybe the price will continue to fall.

    Now, at http://www.hookbag.com/product/H3C06QTRJ/ , the price is 670$!
    Luckily for the end of the year it could go under 600…
