Monster Digital Daytona 240GB SSD Review

Specifications, Pricing and Availability




Normally we show the manufacturer's product specifications from the manufacturer's website here, but Monster Digital has taken down the Daytona product page. We snagged this image from Amazon. Amazon currently has all three capacity sizes in stock and shipping - 480GB, 240GB and 120GB. When researching prices we also found a 90GB model listed at Amazon. We're looking at the 240GB model today.


Monster Digital uses LSI SandForce controllers in both of their SSD product lines. Le Mans is the flagship product with Toshiba Toggle 2 NAND flash and Daytona is the step down model, mainstream product. As we mentioned in the introduction, this is the first time we've ran across this NAND that we know of. At one point in time Mushkin and a few others shipped SSDs with 32nm Toggle NAND, but it was quite a bit different, the performance was much better and the packages were labeled different. This NAND performs a lot like ONFi asynchronous flash from IMFT.


Not that I would even come close to endorsing any of these products, but I have to put forth my best effort with due diligence. Amazon shows the Daytona 90GB at $99.77, the 120GB at $109.99, the 240GB that we're reviewing today at $203.11 and the large 480GB at $421.04. All drives ship with a three year warranty.


Unlike the LeMans Series, Daytona doesn't ship with an elaborate accessory package. You get a nice box, your drive that might or might not eat your data and a couple of paper manuals.
