LiteOn Unveils the CV5 Series Entry-level SSD

LiteOn unveiled the CV5 line of entry-level SATA SSD in the 2.5-inch form-factor. Available in 128 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB capacities, the drives offer performance suitable for "everyday usage," according to their makers. The drives feature TLC NAND flash with limited SLC cache capabilities for burst performance. All three variants offer up to 520 MB/s of sequential reads; while the three variants churn up sequential write speeds of up to 160 MB/s for the 128 GB variant, up to 320 MB/s for 256 GB, and up to 450 MB/s for the 512 GB variant. Most common SSD features are offered, including gen 3.0 low-density parity check (LDPC Gen 3) ECC.

If they only go up to 512GB, they aren't cheap enough, otherwise they'd also be offering 1TB drives...

When the best thing you can say about your product is that it's good for everyday use*, that says a lot.

*whatever that means

These drives as the title states are entry level drives, they’re made and marketed towards people still using old HDD’s and haven’t made the jump to SSD’s. Those are the people that would be interested in something like this. I understand if you're already using top of the line SSD’s PCIe and NVMe types the numbers aren’t anything mind blowing but this isn’t for you. So why even come here and troll. If you are looking to upgrade your old spinning HDD these drives would be a considerable option.
