Two solid state disks compared

Posted on Monday, November 19 2007 @ 10:01:00 CET by

ExtremeTech compares two SSDs: one from Samsung and one from Super Talent.
With the latest drives, that hasn't changed. Samsung has just begun shipping what the company has dubbed "the fastest SSD drive" on the market. And our testing shows that it is speedy. But it does have a few shortcomings, including that high price. You can't actually buy one off the street, at least not yet. But according to Samsung, you can add one to certain Dell laptops—if you're willing to shell out an extra $950. That's right, moving down to 64GB will cost you nearly a grand more than a larger capacity drive using rotating media.

Today we look at Samsung's latest 64GB offering, built into a 2.5-inch housing suitable for laptop computers. We also test the most recent generation of SSD drives from Super Talent, taking a look at their 32GB model. Finally, we compare both to the very latest 320GB, 5,400RPM Scorpio laptop drive from Western Digital.
Check it out over here. While both SSDs definitely have their advantages they only receive average ratings, mainly because of the extremely high price.
