When you think of SSDs it is very unlikely that your first mention would be Silicon Power, nor would it even make most people's Top 10. That didn't stop them from releasing a small SSD, the Silicon Power Velox V30 60GB which features the new SandForce SF-2200 controller. Worth noting is that at no time in the review did Bjorn3D experience the bug that many people, especially Gigabyte board users, have experienced. What they did find was not unexpected, due to the small size of the drive SandForce has less channels to deal with which impacts performance significantly. Still the drive will likely beat any SATA II drive out there and at 60GB it will not put you too far into debt.
"Silicon Power Velox V30 60GB SSD is a nice budget SSD. We pit it against top performers like the OCZ Vertex 3 to see how well it does."
