G.Skill Phoenix PRO 120GB SSD review

The SSD tested today once again is the Phoenix series from G.Skill. After we tested their 100GB Phoenix SSD (which received a very positive review) G.Skill instantly requested if we would like to review the 120GB PRO model. Both drives pretty much are the same thing, same controller ... The 100GB Phoenix uses Samsung memory though but the trick is that there is 20GB extra volume space available on the new 120GB Pro (compared to the 100GB model) for nearly the same price. A new Firmware for the SandForce 1200 based controller that is inside this 120GB model simply reserves less NAND flash memory for its data-compression scheme. As a result the overall write performance could be a tiny bit slower, but only a few percent as best. It however will give you 20 GB more space to play around with at the same price. And since price per GB is everything in the land of SSDs -- this certainly is a significant for any vendor and for you as an end-user.

Ever since a year or two every now and then this relatively small company G.Skill rears it's head and bam .. show a really impressive product, always at a sharp price compared to the competition. We love their DDR memory products, we liked their SSD range and recently G.Skill added yet another SSD into the product line. it is called the Phoenix SSD and it is armed with that much discussed SandForce1200 based controller.
