Final Thoughts

So, what do we have in the Cardea Liquid? As our test results clearly show, the revised Cardea Liquid first and foremost does perform as advertised. The Cardea Liquid does indeed deliver a 10c lower temperature curve. Not only that, but the Cardea Liquid also proved to be one of the better performing SSDs we've tested to date.

Looking at our user experience rating, we find the Cardea Liquid delivering an overall user experience that is a cut above. The Cardea Liquid serves up a significant user experience advantage over Intel's 665p and just under the user experience that Kingston's KC2000 1TB can deliver.

Looking back at our testing results, we can find several areas where the T-Force Cardea Liquid really stands out from amongst its peers. First and foremost is it does deliver 10c lower temps according to our results. Following that, we would point out that the Cardea Liquid delivered the second-best results we've ever seen for 4K QD1 T1 as measured by CDM 7.

In addition, several more benchmark highlights clearly indicate what the Cardea Liquid is all about, but we don't need to get into that to render a verdict on the new and improved TeamGroup T-Force Cardea Liquid SSD. The drive delivers as advertised and then some, which is why the Cardea Liquid is deserving of a TweakTown award.
