ADATA SP600 128GB

It's not always the enthusiasts (and well-heeled) that want blistering speeds, and certainly not just in the SSD arena. Anyone with an SSD can benefit from massive performance gains over a hard drive, from the most diehard to the budget-oriented consumer. So the ADATA Premier Pro SP600 targets the latter, offering an SSD that's very accessible to users on a modest budget of less than $100. But how does the performance of the ADATA Premier Pro SP600 measure up? Is it worth the investment? Let's dive in and find out.



 
 
 
 
 

Crucial v4 256GB

It's not always the enthusiasts (and well-heeled) that want blistering speeds, and certainly not just in the SSD arena. Anyone with an SSD can benefit from massive performance gains over a hard drive, from the most diehard to the budget-oriented consumer. So the Crucial v4 targets the latter, offering an SSD that's very accessible to users on a modest budget. Specifically, the v4 is limited to the SATA II 3G interface, so we're not expecting record-breaking performance results today. But at a price of $189, it's a very attractive option. Let's just say that Crucial's stated specifications for this drive turned out to be very conservative, and we were pleasantly surprised by the performance offered by the v4.



 
 
 
 
 

VisionTek Racer 480GB SSD

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.
