Angelbird is a young solid-state drive manufacturer from Austria. Their new SSD, wrk, is built on the Silicon Motion SM2246 controller which delivers good real-life performance in our testing. While a price of $300 for 512 GB won't shock the market these days, the drive is affordable overall.

I'd like to propose a small chart on the first page (or a disclaimer) comparing the differences between sizes of the same drive. I'm assuming people are more likely to buy the 256GB or 128GB versions. Reviews of just the top model aren't very representative of what the average person buys. Just something simple showing advertised R/W speeds, IOPS, formatted capacity, price, etc. This drive varies greatly in write speeds over the three versions. Even if you don't review all of the available models, it would still give people a general idea of what to expect.

I think the sizes on the first page are wrong. It says it is available in 120, 240, and 480 and lists prices for 120, 256, and 512. I think those are all supposed to be 128, 256, and 512.

All good. More competion is always welcome. Let's hope the prices are going down even further.
