Pros: -Synchronous MLC flash (Mircon 20nm) -As fast as the Samsung EVO with better flash -Low power usage, even for an ssd -Cheap!
Cons: -New controller on the market means reliability is still a question
Overall Review: The new silicon motion controller is plenty fast, maybe not enthusiast level fast, but in everyday use it blazes.
