    World leading flash memory manufacturer Silicon Power today announces the new 2.5" SATA Velox V20 series Solid State Drive (SSD). Instantly boosting PC performances, it uses the latest SandForce controller, featuring a maximum read-speed of 285MB/s and write-speed of 275MB/s so enthusiasts can sit back and enjoy the speedy transfer rates!

    Silicon Power’s V20 SSD uses the latest SandForce controller, it boasts a continuous read / write speed up to 285MB/ 275MB per second, respectively. An actual test using a 40GB V20 required only 13 seconds to boot into Windows and open up a program. It is the perfect enterprise office PC storage solution or the ideal boot-up disk in any PC! In addition, V20 SSD also supports TRIM Command and Garbage Collection technology to counter performance drop issues due to long period of use and continuous write actions.

    Significantly Extending Lifespan
    Using SandForce controller’s patented DuraClass technology, it can extend the SSD lifespan up to 5 years! The DuraWrite technology optimizesthe to-be written data to a reserved 7% flash memory storage block that acts as an intermediate station before data are written with an amplification less than 1 to their final storage blocks. This vastly reduces the occurrences of bad sectors and thus extending the lifespan.

    Silicon Power’s V20 SSD comes with a 3-year warranty and a 2.5inch to 3.5inch adapter bracket for you to install into a desktop PC to boost performances.

    Features:
    • Excellent data transfer rate

    it's not the adapter that can boost performances :wtf:

    the adapter is for people without 2.5" bracket in their case, but want to improves performance of their desktop PC with SSD. IIRC, no SSD comes into 3.5" form factor...yet.

    the 3.5" vertex 2 is slower than the 2.5" model by a small amount, they just used more, lower density chips to make the same drive cheaper.

    OFC, its sold at a HIGHER price than the 2.5", so the price savings are completely negated, making the 2.5" a better buy (unless you want the 3.5" for its giant extra heatsinkness)

    Shame it costs 1.5 grand :laugh:

    Even the 100gb is fast as hell

    Features:- £334
    - Max Read: up to 740MB/s
    - Max Write: up to 690MB/s
    - Sustained Write: up to 550MB/s

    yeah the ibis runs over a fiber link, its rather leet. not really comparable to a regular drive, since its requires a custom PCI-E controller card to go with it.
