Even if the prices of SSD drives are still very high at present, it is at such an upgrade to the biggest performance boost that you can give his PC at present, only after numerous tests and comparisons with normal hard drives, we could see where the brake was ultimately in our system. That is why we are not surprised that people are investing their holiday and Christmas bonuses in an expensive but very fast and absolutely silent hard drive for this reason, we want to present you another interesting model of G.Skill, with the Phoenix Pro 120GB.
The SSD drives are slowly accepted by the customer, with the price, of course, should not be playing a major role, if you advance in his system on 2 hard drives divide and saves only the main programs and the operating system on the SSD, then reaches a 100GB drive is sufficient. The G.Skill Phoenix Pro is already above 40 GB, which would eventually extend for such a use, anyone who has ever had the pleasure to an SSD drive, which is determined not think twice, we choose a 120 GB version because we like our C: drive to a little more and not always clean up anräumen due to lack of space.

The automatic trim command will only work with Windows 7, with most customers from SSDs just with the new operating system will change and thus already have an advantage, some manufacturers such as Intel also offer additional tools to use the TRIM command with other operating systems other than Windows 7, such a tool is unfortunately not at G Skill Often a firmware update of troubles, so that the SSD drive this command at all can.
The G.Skill Phoenix Pro with 120 GB is currently high price resulting in a GB when you consider how much a good Raid 0 array, then the amount invested for the SSD drive is not that bad. The Phoenix Pro SSDs are based on the SandForce 1200 controller, these have no DRAM cache, and thus fall off the block ausbream senden fragmentation that plague those with other controllers such as Intel and Indilinx Barefoot around.
