Solidata X2-256 MLC 2.5-inch Solid State Disk

 

Introduction

 

The race has been on for competing products to catch the Intel solid state drives. For consumers, the multi level cell (MLC) technology drives is where the action is. Intel shocked everyone when their X25-M was released because of the drives outstanding performance that left other manufacturers scratching their heads and wondering what they could do to improve their product lines.

 

DVNation, the leading independent retailer of everything solid state has been working with TweakTown for over a year now, supplying us with the background technical knowhow to understand solid state technology and also the latest and greatest products to review before they are available to the general consumer. Last week DVNation sent us a trio of products from Solidata to evaluate and write reviews on. We started out with the new Solidata X2-128, a 128GB MLC SSD that showed great performance in the lab, but was unable to topple the Intel X25-M in terms of performance.

 

Today we are going to put the larger Solidata X2-256, the 256GB variant through its paces and see how it performs against the 128GB model as well as several other SSDs that have passed through our test lab. Could a larger SSD based on the same technology be faster than the X2-128 and will it be enough to dethrone the mighty Intel X25-M? Read on to find out.
