MTRON is one of the global leaders of the solid state technology drive push and has invested a great deal of time and money into their product development. With MLC starting to gain traction in performance, MTRON will need to continue their development of the single level cell products or get pulled back into the "just another expensive drive" category, much like Plextor did with their ROM drives. At this point the PRO 7500 is still a class leading product worthy of praise, but the benchmarks show just how close the competing products are catching up.
The high cost of the enterprise SLC drives is still high and as such will keep typical users at bay. From my observations the PRO 7500 is best kept in the server room. We would have liked to test in this environment, but global demand has been high for the PRO so our access to three or more drives was cut short. In reality, it is difficult to even justify a single drive review of enterprise drives, but sometimes you must make concessions and just take what you can get.
When it comes to performance, there isn't much on the market that can compete with the MTRON PRO 7500 once it is in its native environment. MTRON sacrifices a little performance to gain higher long term stability. The next product cycle for SLC and MLC drives is of great interest to me since the lines are really starting to become blurred. Time will tell if MLC is able to take SLC on all fronts.
