What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


The good performance in this scenario seems to be a result of some Sandforce magic, this is the first time we see this kind of behavior.

Even if it might not be the fastest drive, it is still an SSD, which means the V30 60 GB offers a huge improvement in access time over any traditional HDD, resulting in a much smoother and snappier experience.

With only eight flash chips used, the bandwidth between the Sandforce controller and the memory chips is cut in half - SF-2281 supports 16 chips.
