Very strong performance from a mainstream SSD offering.
Strong mixed I/O performance in our server workloads.
Great all-round performance.
Proven Indilinx controller.
Worthy upgrade over previous Vertex SSD generation.
Higher than average 4k max latency.
Price is competitive but hardly enough to differentiate it over creme of the crop models.
