    We've had a play with OCZ's first take on the PCIe-based SSD, the OCZ RevoDrive 120GB and you could colour us fairly impressed. A little while later and the OCZ RevoDrive X2 240GB has found itself slotted into our test bench.

    Huge capacity combined with a fast spin speed and backed by a super fast interface and cache makes this a very impressive single drive, not only that but its impressively quiet while it does it.

    Samsung 470 Series SSD 256GB review

    8  

    It's a peculiarity of the current market for solid state drives that a largely unheralded little outfit known as SandForce makes the dominant SSD controller chipset. Not, perhaps, for much longer. The big boys are fighting back and one of the early salvos takes the form of the new Samsung SSD 470 Series 256GB.

    8  

    It's fashionable among the technologistas to grumble about the quality and performance of solid-state drive controller chipsets. But controllers aren't the only problem with SSD performance; increasingly, storage interfaces are creating a bottleneck. Enter the OCZ IBIS HSDL 240GB, an ultra-high performance SSD designed to sidestep performance issues related to the SATA I/O interface.

    If you're looking for a large drive with a ridiculous amount of capacity (formatted you're looking at 2.72TB), and don't mind paying a little bit over the odds for it, this is the drive for you.
