Shortly following SanDisk®’s acquisition of Pliant Technology, editor Logan Harbaugh put five drives with price ranging from $250 to $8400 to the test for his review on ITworld.com, including our Lightning® LS 300S 3.5” 300GB drive*. Others include:
• Intel SSDSA2SH064G1GC 2.5” 64GB
• LSI WarpDrive SLP-300 (SSS-6200) PCI-E 300GB
• OWC Mercury Extreme Pro RE OWCSSDMXRE400 2.5” 400GB
• Plextor PX-128M2S-02 2.5” 128GB
The Lightning drive fared incredibly well among the competition, with Logan noting, “Of the drives connected by SATA or SAS, the Pliant was the clear performance winner, with very high throughput and very low response times, ideal for database applications.” In addition, with no performance degradation during the write-intensive test and available expandability, he concluded that the Lightning drive is an “excellent choice for databases that are performance-limited by storage performance.”
