In our quest to cover the latest and greatest technology, we’re sometimes guilty of neglecting perfectly cromulent SKUs from smaller manufacturers. The Phoenix Pro series of solid-state drives is built on the same SandForce SF-1200 controller that...

At the end of the day, G.Skill's drive is going to have to compete the same way most SandForce-based drives have to: on price. Overall the Phoenix Pro is neither the fastest nor slowest drive in our lineup, but as a result it doesn't draw any...
