Super Talent 128GB SATA II SSD

PC Mark Vantage

PC Mark Vantage
 
PC Mark Vantage is one of the main benchmarks utlities thats trusted and thats for a very good reason, its one of the few benchmarking tools out there that can actually simulate day to day usage on a PC. "Whats so good about that?" you may ask, well to put it simply it can give us a good idea of how a PC or parts of a PC (in our case the SSD's and HDD's) will actually function in real world use.  For this part of the test we will be using the HDD Suite broken down into its core results.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Results Analysis
 
In all tests the ST FTM28GX25H puts in an outstanding performance, beating the OCZ Vertex in all but two of the tests; Windows Photo Gallery by 1.42MB/s  and Media Player which was only by .6 MB/s.  Against the OCZ Summit the ST FTM28GX25H wins in all but one test which was again the Windows Photo Gallery test this time by 8.6MB/s.
The Super Talent drive turns in yet another excellent performance. 
 
Lets take alook at how the drive handles real world usage.

SSDs are easily the most desirable piece of hardware around. Silent, super fast, cool. This one is fast and reasonably priced. What's more to ask?

It scores 10 on the VB want-o-meter.Quote

In a climate where we often see the judgement of particularly graphic cards as a matter of £/fps, despite the performance. Would it be a reasonable request to add £/G at the bottom of the comparison table for the range of tested drives ?

Could be a good inclusion in cpu comparisons also being as, looking from the gaming pov, anything above a 3.2g (or so) P4 is regarded as a "minimum" requirement.Quote

Hi Rasta,

Its a good idea and something i was going to include with this review, but as I was unable to find a uk price for the drive it would be unfair to just convert the $ to £ as we know that just does not happen when it comes to pc hardware. If i can find a uk price in the future its something I will be sure to include

VB,

100% Agree with you fella, now I would love to find out how they would perform in a raid 0 setup Will have to wait until their available in the uk though.Quote

When you say £/G do you mean per GB???

If it's to be likened to the £/FPS comparison, then surely it would need to be £/Read & Write speed.

Think I know what I'm getting at.

Hi Bungral

Nope £/G should b3 £ cost per Gb as in Gigabyte.

Pound cost per Gigabyte.

Say a 128Gb drive costs £300 that would be 128 divided by 300 giving you an approc cost of £2.34 per Gigabyte for the drive

Hope thats makes sense. Doing as £ per read/write speed wouldnt work.

CheersQuote
