MemoRight FTM Plus 240GB Solid State Drive Review

Final Thoughts




Some of you may remember the old MemoRight logo from back in 2008 when we first started looking at their products. The sad thing is MemoRight has had a very long time to build up their name recognition, but has failed to do so. The company has taken a slow but steady growth pattern and to this day continues to deliver good products while keeping with their core values. In 2009 MemoRight was the first company to receive SSDA Certification and now we see the company making inroads to the consumer market. Hopefully over the next couple of years the company will work on building their name so more consumers know about their very good products.


As we've shown today, MemoRight's products are top notch. They have been going back to 2007's GT Series. With the company's aggressive pricing it shouldn't take too long for MemoRight to gain the recognition they deserve.


The MemoRight FTM Plus that we looked at today is a real contender in the SATA III SSD market and shouldn't be overlooked. At this time the 240GB doesn't hold the same price crown that the 120GB model has, but MemoRight is looking to move products in more quantity than they did in the past, so this could change very soon.


At this time the 120GB FTM Plus is the lowest priced SandForce SF-2281 controlled drive paired with synchronous flash on the market. The drive ships with a desktop adapter bracket, three year warranty and has a solid support network. That should be enough to get some attention really fast, because a 120GB SF drive at 160 USD is enough to get mine.


The 240GB drive we looked at today costs just under 450 Dollars and is still great performance, but doesn't have the same value as some of the other 240GB drives on the market; although it is very close.


As we talked about in the review, MemoRight doesn't make the same cookie cutter reference design products that many SSD manufacturers are putting out on the market. In 2009 the company built their own R&D center and has been custom building their own PCBs ever since. Our 240GB sample was put through the ringer and didn't have a single problem.


Our sample also didn't have the latest SandForce firmware that was built to address BSOD issues; it seems the FTM Plus was designed from the start to be problem free. Then again, we've only had two products show signs of the problem to start with - I guess that goes to show that our test system validation process was pretty good as well.
