"The firmware upgrade has also seen the Phoenix Pro receive the special ‘Max IOPs’ firmware, previously reserved for the OCZ Vertex 2. This a tweaked version of the standard SandForce firmware originally intended for server-level drives with the SF-1500 controller chip. While the Phoenix Pro lacks the expensive power backup circuitry of an SF-1500 drive, the firmware boosts its random write performance considerably. As we said in our original SandForce coverage though, the difference between a 50MB/sec and a 75MB/sec random write speed is negligible for typical desktop PCs – while it’s nice to have, you’ll never notice the improvement in comparison to a standard SF-1200 based SSD."

Question  Mounting Bracket by Jonb


Does this come with a mounting bracket.. The review suggests it does :)

Answer by thomasr on Friday, December 24, 2010
Yes it does.

Very fast by Ron

Previously I've used 10,000 rpm Raptor sata & 15,000 rpm sas drives. This is the 1st ssd I tried & I'm very pleased & there were no special drivers required for Windows 7 as you often need with sas & scsi. Benchmark figures are great & real life use is worth it as well.

 Excellent by Sug

Got the 60GB version & it is a delight to use. No issues, & really fast!
