Toshiba's HG2 series of SSD's uses their own multi-channel MLC controller in conjunction with 43nm Toshiba MLC NAND to create a mainstream drive that has a maximum sequential read speed of 230MB/s and 180MB/s write. Read on to see how the Toshiba HG2 compares to other popular drives like the OCZ Vertex, Intel X25-M G2 and Crucial C300!
The 256GB Toshiba HG2 Series drive that we benchmarked proved to be a solid performing mainstream SSD from our testing. The vast majority of file transfers in Windows are sequential read and write data moves and the HG2 had very respectable sequential speeds. For example in ATTO we were able to reach 241MB/s read and 177MB/s write. These are the types of speeds that we would expect for a mainstream SSD in 2010. The Toshiba HG2 Series of SSDs also supports TRIM, which is is critical in making sure your drive is performing at the top of its game.
