Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The big standout on the specifications page is the massive read and write speeds. In ATTO we actually achieved a faster write speed than what Solidata claims. It is rare to see a company go conservative with their claimed performance, but we have seen write speeds of up to 212 MB/s. ATTO is a benchmark that we test with, but we rarely publish data from this test, since it often doesn't relate to real world performance.
The rest of the specifications are just common ground for SSDs; a wide range of operating temperatures, high transfer speeds and lots of goodies to keep your drive working for many years to come. One specification that did surprise us was the amount of power drawn. I didn't pick up on this at first until I unplugged the drive from one machine right after a benchmark run. The drive was hot, like Raptor 150GB hot. The Solidata X2-128 uses up to 3 watts; other SSDs have the same rating but I have never felt an SSD get this warm before. Later this week we will test the X2-256 and see if this thermal condition is just an issue with the 128GB drive or if it falls across the entire X2 Series product range.
DVNation currently stocks a wide range of Solidata products. They list the 128GB X2 for 665.00 USD. Newegg lists the Intel X25-M 160GB drive, the closest competitor of the Solidata X2-126GB, for 759 USD. In my opinion both drives are priced out of the reach of the general consumer, but then again, both drives are marketed towards enterprise users and enthusiasts.
