128GB Crucial RealSSD C300 2.5-inch SATA 6GB/s

We have just posted up our review of the Crucial C300 128GB RealSSD.  This drive is based on a Marvell controller that offers up SATA 6Gbps performance.  The single drive can read faster that 360MB/sec!  Previously, you needed a couple of expensive SSDs in a RAID array to reach these speeds.  There's a lot more goodness in our review so check it out here.

It's nice to see the C300 from Crucial is on the cutting edge of performance and technology.  They use their own NAND and RAM in this unit, combine it with a great SATA 6Gbps capable controller from Marvell and let the good times roll.  It has blistering read speeds and while the write speeds aren't the fastest on the planet when it comes to consecutive writes, the random 4K writes are really fast and this drive maintains great performance levels across all file sizes. . .
