The G.Skill Phoenix Pro 40GB SSD is super fast and affordable. So if you are thinking about getting a SSD without breaking the bank, this would be a fantastic option. While a single drive performance is fantastic, a couple in RAID 0 is crazy fast! Also, if 40GBs is enough space for you the Phoenix Pro line is available in 80GB, 100GB, 160GB & 240GB capacities.
Awesome review! These look pretty cool but I still can't see making a switch to SSD when I have a perfectly fine HDD already. =/
when you tested it did you shut down all the power saving features?
So Rodney, when will you switch to a RAID 0 SSD as your standard setup?
I'm personally waiting until the RAID drivers for garbage cleanup and trim are available. Right now my Crucial CT128M225 128GB single drive runs pretty fast.
Same and bang for the buck is the big one. Fact is, a couple of excellent HDDs in a RAID 0 setup still rox. So, I'll live with my 2x WD VelociRaptor 600GB in RAID 0 for now because it offers the best of both worlds, speed and capacity ;)
Those raid 0 results are crazy fast
Yea... very impressive :)
I'm speaking in general terms, but maybe I will clarify this in future reviews.
He did state that higher capacity drives are still on the way. And to be fair you are comparing a PCI-Express SSD to a SATA II.
Very cool that memory companies are jumping into the hard drive business. Do note however that this drive is a MLC and not the SLC that has a lifetime of 10x the write cycles when compared.
memory companies are not jumping into hdd business, a SSD drive is just an electronic memory similar more to RAM than regular mechanical HDDs
My statement still stands correct. Memory companies are jumping into the HDD business, even if it's called a SSD and is more like Memory than a HDDs. It's still the Hard Drive businesses that are being jumped on by the Memory corporations, regardless of the technicalities in the improperly worded terms.
Did I manage to squeal out of this one? lol You all know what I mean here. The Memory corps are building drives and that means more competition and lower prices. ;)
Does RAID 0 usually scale that bad?
Video Review will be posted in an hour or so :)
Shouldn't this be titled "G.Skill Phoenix Pro 40GB SSD Hard Drive" instead of "Video Card" ?
Love the site btw, thanks
