PhotoFast has been on the ball lately. Recently we tested their V5 SSD that uses dual MLC drives with a tiny RAID controller packaged in a single 2.5" enclosure and also the PCIe Promise-Monster that looks more like a video card than a hard drive. Both products produced some great benchmark results, but there are times when only Single Level Cell memory will do.


Now that we are starting to see Multi-Level Cell SSDs performing at Single Level Cell speeds, the decision to go with lower cost MLC can be very tempting for uninformed IT Professionals. The truth is, when you are looking for long term storage solutions where usage is heavy and small reads and writes are often used, SLC is still the best option. A couple of examples would be database servers or a smaller company's QuickBooks server.

As always, SLC comes at a cost that is higher than similar capacity MLC. In this case the G-Monster V4S you are looking at is 499.00 USD from DVNation here in the US. DVNation is the US distributer for PhotoFast and is thought as one of the most knowledgeable consultants for a company's storage needs. Let's move on and take a look at the PhotoFast G-Monster V4S' specifications.
