After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com

When testing drives we like to use standard free to use benchmarks that the reader can easily download and run for themselves to see how their system stacks up. For this reason the benches are all run at default settings unless specified.
We see extremely consistent read speeds in this sequential test. Meaning data is just as easy to access anywhere on the drive whereas with platter drives we see the speeds slow down substantially towards the center of the drive. Revo, as well as other SSDs, do not suffer from this.
