Default First SATA 6G Marvell SSD Tested

While it looks like any other SSD, this Marvell-branded casing hides the first-of-its-kind performance of an SSD optimized for SATA 6G speeds. There are some important caveats to mention with this drive.
* Marvell is NOT going to be making SSDs, only controllers for SSDs, but this is their prototyping solution. Don't expect to see this for sale.
* This is a read-only disk - it was built using ROM memory instead of NAND flash simply because of cost and the drive is still in its infancy. That means we will not be able to do any kind of write tests or benchmarks that require a file system because the unit cannot be initialized.
