We’ve just posted the following review: Sandisk Smart Cloudspeed 1000E Sata 400GB Enterprise SSD Review[newsimage]http://static.myce.com/images_posts/newsitem_small.jpg[/newsimage]

Welcome to Myce’s review of the Smart Storage Systems Cloudspeed 1000E SATA Enterprise SSD.

Sandisk recently completed the acquisition of Smart Storage Systems.

The last Smart Storage Systems drive that we reviewed was the truly outstanding Optimus, our current Editor’s choice from amongst SAS based Enterprise SSDs. However, the Cloudspeed is a relatively inexpensive solution that targets mixed workloads and Smart tells us that the Cloudspeed will be sold at a sub 1.30 USD per gigabyte price point – this will put it head to head with Intel’s DC S3500, which we reviewed recently. With the DC S3500 we saw how Intel had managed with the packaging of its new smaller size 20nm MLC NAND (as compared to its sister drive the Intel DCS3700, which uses the same set of components but with 25nm eMLC NAND) – it is fair to say that write performance and endurance suffered. So it will be interesting to see how Smart Storage Systems has managed with the packaging of its new 19nm MLC NAND solution and how it compares with its closest competitor.

I have to tell you JR, this is an extemely interesting SSD. With the prices of Enterprise SSDs dropping and the prices of Consumer SSDs dropping, I think there may be a point where it makes sense for the consumer to buy an Enterprise SSD. Just my opinion on a topic that intrigues me.:wink:

I agree Alan. If Sandisk/Smart make this drive accessible to the consumer I think it will tempt enthusiasts.
