The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Crunching the numbers

And to round it off, ATTO confirms the same results as seen in the previous tests. This drive is really pushing the limits of its 3Gb/s Sata controller.

Samsung Series 470

I must say I rather like this drive. It’s priced almost identically to Intel’s 320 drives, but does seem to have a slight performance edge over them. It may not be available in such large capacities, but it you’re looking for a drive on a budget you won’t be opting for 500GB or more, anyway.

Verdict

RH Editor's Choice

No matter if you just want a 64GB boot drive or you reckon your whole system will fit on 256GB, Samsung’s latest delivers what it promises and as such, is deserving of a large chunk of your attention.

Even if the current Sata limitations cramp your style, this is certainly a line of drives worth watching, even if you don’t grab one this generation. I for one am looking forward to 6Gb/s Sata offerings from Samsung in the future. ®
