Silicon Power V20 120GB SandForce SF-1200 SSD Review - Benchmarks - HD Tune Pro

No, today's review isn't a throwback to 2010. The SF-1200 still has life, only now with a nicer price.

HD Tune is a Hard Disk utility which has the following functions:

 

Benchmark: measures the performance
Info: shows detailed information
Health: checks the health status by using SMART
Error Scan: scans the surface for errors
Temperature display

 

HD Tune Pro gives us accurate read, write and access time results and for the last couple of years has been gaining popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must have application for storage device testing.

Our benchmark results consist of the 2011 super drives that all use SATA 6G other than the Vertex 2 and Silicon Power V20 that we are showcasing today. The Vertex 2 drives use the same 34nm flash that the V20 does. These Vertex 2 drives are becoming difficult to find these days. OCZ Technology has been building the Vertex 2 with 25nm flash since December 2010.

 

The Silicon Power V20 has nearly identical read performance that we found on the Vertex 2 120GB drive.

When it comes to the average write speed across the drive, the V20 runs almost as well as the 34nm Vertex 2. Both drives had different firmware when tested, so we expect to see some variation in performance on the charts.
