Value


The term “Value” is such an amorphous term that it truly has different meanings for different people. For some a hard drive is only as good as its performance potential, for others it is how quiet or durable it is; for others still it’s how effective it is for its cost. We here at HWC try to provide as many answers as possible for the term “Value”. Hopefully by this point in the review people looking at performance potential will have a fairly good idea of what its Value is. For the “best bang for the buck” crowd we have included a chart below showing how much a give drive costs per GB . No consideration has been made for performance, “durability” or any other extraneous factors; this is just raw performance vs. monetary cost. All prices are based on the lowest price found in our Price Comparison engine at the time of their initial review for the "Original" chart and are the lowest price found in our Price Comparison engine at the time of this review for the "Updated" chart.



When we first heard of the extended SandForce drives these are the types of numbers we were hoping to see. While the F120 is not quiet as fast as the Vertex 2 it still is a flagship model with flagship performance. As time goes by we are sure that this price per gigabyte will only get better but in the mean time this drive is still damn good deal. Any large, top tier solid state drive that costs less than $3.00 per GB at the time of its release has to be considered a forerunner in our books.
