Corsair Performance Series Solid State RAID Report

 

Introduction

 

A few months ago we were able to test the Intel X25-M and RunCore Pro IV drives in RAID 0 and published an article about our findings. The Intel controller is responsible for controlling drives from Intel, Kingston, Buffalo Tech and a few others. The Indilinx controller is used in nearly a hundred products from companies like Crucial, RunCore, OCZ, Solidata and even Corsair's latest SSD offering, the Extreme Series.

 

A couple of weeks ago we started playing with the Samsung S3C29RBB01 controller that is found in the Corsair Performance Series and Samsung PB22-J solid state drives. We were impressed with the Corsair P256's cost per gigabyte and found that it was a very good performer as well. The drive was able to win a couple of our benchmark tests and more surprisingly they were tasks that you would use on a daily basis, something that surprised us since our first generation Samsung drive we reviewed was heavily optimized for server orientated tasks.

 

One area that we just glanced over in our review was Samsung's Self-Healing feature. Today we are going to talk about this exclusive technology that is built right into the drive. Let's get right along with it and have a detailed look at Self-Healing to see what it does and why it is such a hot topic.
