Default MTRON MSP 7000 SSD - Raptors Beware

When it comes to performance-oriented solutions in the SSD market, you need look no further than MTRON. Considering they have only been around for two years, this is an impressive feat. MTRON is focusing their engineering efforts entirely on Solid State Drives (SSD). We recently looked at the MTRON MSD-S25032 32GB 2.5" product which advertised maximum read speeds of 100 MB/sec, write speeds of 80 MB/sec, and burst speeds up to 150 MB/sec - all that combined with random access speeds of around 0.1ms. Those specifications far exceed any of the latest SanDisk and Samsung consumer SSD products; these boast 67MB/sec read speeds and 45MB/sec write speeds.

Our limited testing today shows both the strengths and weaknesses of this particular drive when comparing it to one of the best performing consumer desktop drives under Vista. The read and write speeds are improved over the previous MTRON drive series, allowing it to further it extend its lead over the Raptor in most benchmarks. However, this drive (actually SSDs in general) still has trouble with large block writes that you typically find in video applications.
good for ultimate gaming rig? 32gb game drive for $1200

But you still want one, BADLY =P


Considering the speed gains, I would say it is starting to become worth it for corporate PCs because time is money there.

More Mtron stuff... 9 Mtron SSD's in RAID 0 anyone? http://www.nextlevelhardware.com/storage/battleship/

Was waiting for this one to get posted, but seems to have slipped through. It's incredible, might do more than just make waves in the storage industry if the rest of the system needs to be "upgraded" to simply fully utilize such SDD hardware configurations.

Corporate PCs do apply here 99% of users are tied to company server and enterprise software except senior managers who happen to be geeks.
