It's like the full size model, only thinner and a little faster. Check out our first SSD review from DMS.

Specifications, Pricing and Availability

DMS's house brand Celerity series of products are based on the same model that most Team SandForce companies use. There is a synchronous flash product, an asynchronous flash product and even a SATA II (3Gbps) class. Sitting at the top is the Celerity 6G Plus and today we'll look at the 120GB drive.

 

The drive itself ships with all of the SandForce goodies enabled and DMS lists all of the buzzwords on their site. The 6G Plus is available from datamemorysystems.com directly and they carry 120GB, 240GB and 480GB capacity sizes. The baseline Celerity 6G, the asynchronous model is available in the same capacity sizes, but also includes a 60GB model.

 

DMS takes the term bare drive seriously and that is exactly what you get in the package. You do get a three year no hassle warranty, but items like desktop adapter brackets, cables, data migration software are all extra, but can be purchased on the site.

 

That leads us into the price and the only real issue we found with the Celerity 6G Plus. Our 120GB drive that we are looking at today sells for $239. That price was pretty good when the SF-2281 based drives launched, but it's a bit unrealistic now.

 

Hopefully after this review hits the site DMS takes a look at the competitions pricing and makes some adjustments.
