Iomega SSD 128GB USB 3.0 drive
SuperSpeed performance anxiety
Counting the cost
Obviously Sata-to-USB 3.0 adapters need significant work before SSDs see their full potential unleashed in these external enclosures. They are, however, still a fair bit faster than their platter-spinning brethren.
Performance claims err towards the theoretical and the price seems unrealistic too
Certainly, Iomega is putting down a marker to show its presence in this current generation of SSD meets USB 3.0 storage, however, it is significantly more expensive than Kingston’s offering. If you must have black aluminium, by all means buy Iomega’s SSD Flash Drive, but if you’re sensible, you’ll go to Kingston and pay £100 less for the 128GB drive and £220 less for its 256GB variant. ®
