    Reviews - G.Skill Phoenix Pro 40GB SSD review

    At a tempting £80, is this performance-orientated SandForce drive the ultimate low-cost upgrade?

    SSDs are getting very tempting these days! Still I will be waiting for the decent 64GB drives to come down to the £80 mark.

    Raid 0 looks like performance win, but I thought RAID meant no TRIM?

    Or am I behind the times?

    Im with you on that one ! 60GB is a reasonable amount for a boot & Apps...


    I like the look of a lot of the SSD that are coming out at the moment. Controllers & price are much better than the earlier part of the year...

    Would've been nice to see this up against the more simalarly priced Vertex 2E 60GB which was as low as £90 on TodayOnly I beleive. If its performance is similar to its 120GB variant then that is surely a much better buy than this? I think I could live with 60GB, 40 on the other hand would require just a few too many sacrifices..
