While Legit Reviews might be mixing their metaphors when they refer to Sandforce SSDs as a 'dime' a dozen, they are certainly right that there are a lot of companies implementing that particular controller. This time it is PQI, long time sellers of flash memory based products, and their PQI S535 256 GB drive. One thing that makes this company different is that the speeds advertised on the box were slower than what Legit Reviews saw in their benchmarks. See just how much faster in the full review.
"At this point there isn't a lot new we can say about the PQI S535 256 GB drive as SF-1200 based SSDs are a dime a dozen right now. Ok, that may draw ire from those that are still waiting on buying an SSD because of the cost but we've done no less than ten reviews now on such drives. PQI is a little conservative in their specifications of 250 MB/s reads and writes as we saw well above that for each in the ATTO benchmark..."
