Summary

Our Score:

8

User Score:

Our PCMark Vantage results confirm that this drive has impressive performance.

In fact it again beats every single competitor bar the Intel drive. The one exception is video-editing, where Patriot's TorqX SSD wins out by the narrowest of margins. Still, going by the results so far, OCZ looks to be onto a champion here.

This sector seems to be crying out for a group test of some sort. There are a lot of drives out there.





I would like to see you review something with a Samsung controller, such as Samsungs, or larger drives in the Corsair Extreme series.

Well I'm ordering mine from the US.. That price disparity is just ridiculous!

@xenos You are absolutely right - I thought I was seeing things before. The Intel drives came across at a pretty fair parity, but that made them astronomically better value than the Indilinx drives. I was reading articles like the anandtech "buy intel at 80/160" and "buy indilinx if you need 64/128/256". Only trouble was, at the time, a 80GB Intel X25-M was cheaper than any 64GB Indilinx drive, in fact it was close to price to the 30GB Vertex. Crazy. I took a look at the US pricing and it was much more competitive.





The X25-M has gone up in price (and down in availability) since I bought it, but the disparity is still there, in the UK, the Intel drives seem much better value.

Where can you get this in the US? As usual, the best price vendor does not ship to the UK.
