MTRON is back with another SLC based SSD. Is SLC still the fastest, or has MLC closed the gap? Let's take a look and see.

MTRON PRO 7500 32GB 2.5-inch Solid State Drive


Multi-Level Cell (MLC) drives have started catching their Single Level Cell (SLC) counterparts in recent months when it comes to the performance category. The MLC drives have always had a significant lead when it comes to price, but SLC has towered over MLC in performance. Today we are looking at the latest SLC technology to come from MTRON, one of the global leaders in solid state storage technology.

Previously we were given the opportunity to look at two MTRON drives by our friends at DVNation. Today's review drive came from MTRON directly, but we are still going to give DVNation a shout out for their help in securing the drive for our review. One thing to note, we were hoping to get in four MTRON PRO 7500 drives for a RAID review, since this is an enterprise product and in all likelihood would be used in a RAID 5 or RAID 10 array in a company's database server. Global demand for the PRO 7500, however, has been so high that a RAID review was not possible due to the amount of products on hand at MTRON's marketing department.

As stated above, the MTRON SLC 7500 SSD is an enterprise product designed primarily for use in server environments. MTRON does market the drive as being a notebook drive alternative, but the high cost of ownership makes this task seem unlikely. MTRON does, however, make a line of products that fit into the typical notebook user category, the MOBI line. Today we are going to focus on the new PRO 7500 line of products and see how they compare with today's latest and greatest 2.5-inch products, both platter and solid state based.
