G.Skill Phoenix 100GB Solid State Drive Review Comment Thread
 
At this point, SSDs sporting SandForce controllers seem to be a dime a dozen. This hasn't stopped G.Skill from releasing their own SF-1200 based drive but they have also modified the design in order to improve performance while keeping its price below that of the competition. Could this be the perfect SSD for enthusiasts looking for maximum value?

while the performance is nice, the cost...

I still await an SSD with good performance for under 1$/GB

Maybe I skipped a sentence or my brain turned off but I didn't see why intel's offering wasn't compared.

I like the fact that one of these companies is thinking outside the box and bringing the price reduction to the consumer. While it's a start, I would still like to see the prices drop, as per a previous statement by thorn. It also seems to me that this particular company isn't trying to gouge the consumer. Their ram is competitive for a good price as well. I'll be keeping an eye on these guys.

Rather go with the 60 GB vertex 2 for $200 CDN...

Agreed. Same reason why I have a G.Skill Falcon II. Cheapest out of all the Indilinx drives with the same performance.

It would be nice to see testing done on an OS that fully supports SSD's.
