Team Group is a well-known Taiwanese memory and flash storage maker with a long history of catering to the needs of users from all over the globe. Today, we have a review of the Team Group Vulcan G SSD, which is targeted at the entry-level segment and upgraders who are replacing their old mechanical HDDs.
We previously reviewed the Team Group Vulcan SSD, which delivered solid performance at affordable pricing. The new Team Group Vulcan G is an even more affordable drive, reaching previously unthinkable price points for SSDs, but some compromises had to be made.
