G.Skill Phoenix Pro 60Gb SSD review on Thinkcomputers

"These new SandForce-based drives are really setting the standard for enthusiast solid state drives... As far as performance goes the Phoenix Pro did very well scoring 284MB/s read and 272MB/s write in ATTO Disk Benchmark, the highest score of all the SandForce-based drives we have tested. Keep in mind that the SF-1200 chip specifications are 260MB/s read and write. G.Skill has improved that by giving this drive speeds of 285MB/s read and 275MB/s write and the results were right on... Just like all other SandForce-based drives you get native TRIM garbage collection and SMART support... I do like that this drive does come with a mounting bracket. Many cases still do not have mounting systems for 2.5-inch drives so it is nice that the mounting bracket is included."
