If you were to ask me for a list of who made the best SSDs on the market MemoRight would be in my top three or four. The companies 2.5 inch drives are built very well and I don't just mean the outside of the cases. As a reviewer I get to take all of these SSDs apart to see what's inside. Generally I don't point out shoddy work, but when a product comes in with the components soldered well on the PCB, everything lined up with precision and such I try to mention it in the review. MemoRight is one of those companies that manufacturers really good boards with precision.

 

Today we're looking at a new venture from MemoRight, an mSATA SSD. MemoRight recently launched two mSATA products, a SATA II model named MS 700 and the SATA III MS 701 that we are looking at today.

 

Over the last couple of years we've seen our fair share of mSATA drives. The first was an upgrade part for a Dell Mini9, a system that is currently used in my garage for Ducati tuning. That first drive was a rather large at the time 64GB model. It cost roughly $300, back when SSDs were a little out of reach for most consumers. Since then we've seen numerous 32GB and 64GB mSATA drives and even a couple of 128GB models have hit the office of SSD Insanity, but never a 256GB drive.

 

That changes today! The new MemoRight MS 70x series takes the capacity up a notch, all the way to 256GB. These drives are based on SandForce controllers so the marketing and user capacity is 240GB, but we're used to that now. What the MS 701 240GB brings to the table is SandForce speeds, read and write over 500MB/s and it does so in a tiny package that is ready to increase the performance of your new notebook or motherboard with mSATA to a whole new level.
