The Inland Professional SATA III SSDs are some of the cheapest SSDs you can buy today but they are far from the fastest. For many, the almighty Dollar means more than breaking performance records. This series gets you a better than mechanical disk performance for around the same price. Some shoppers would never give this product a second glance, and you might think this is a hate, but I don't.
After going two years with inflated SSD prices, the Inland Professional SATA III is a welcome change. For our readers this isn't what you put your operating system on but it's a good, insanely cheap product to load your games and other less-frequently used software on. It is also a good drive for a second system that you may otherwise use an older HDD for. This series keeps you away from disks because at these prices there simply isn't an excuse to use a mechanical drive in anything but network storage.
When we first found this series, the 480GB model was the fifth bestselling SSD on Amazon. It's clear that others like the idea of low-cost SSDs with some degree of reliability. If SATA isn't your cup of tea, then Inland Professional has another option that only costs a little more. In an upcoming review, we will look at an Inland Professional NVMe SSD based on the Phison E8 controller. The drive is nearly identical to the new Corsair MP300, Kingston A1000, Patriot Scorch M.2, and MyDigitalSSD SBX.
