RunCore RCP V mSATA T50 SATA III 120GB SSD Review (Page 12)

Final Thoughts

Just a few days ago we really ripped into the RunCore Pro V 2.5" SATA III for coming in overpriced and under powered (due to asynchronous flash). RunCore didn't release a 2.5" SF-2281 model with higher speed synchronous flash and we felt it was a poor choice for their market and previous reputation of releasing class leading products. Our faith in RunCore took a real hit.

The T50 mSATA SATA III on the other hand restored our confidence in the company and once again has us excited in the brand. Innovative products like the T50 are what brought RunCore on our radar in the first place; hopefully RunCore can continue to deliver these types of products in the future.

With larger SSD players sitting on the sidelines of the mSATA field right now, RunCore is free to run the market. We are starting to see Samsung and Renice get their mSATA products together, but RunCore has the fastest drive on the market already.

If you have a mSATA hole to fill then you can't go wrong with going with the best today. Even products that only use SATA II can use the T50 even though performance is still limited to SATA II speeds. When you upgrade your notebook, netbook or ultrabook the T50 can easily come with you into the newer product and then you can take advantage of full SATA III performance.
