Samsung has released their 470 Series line of SSDs which feature Samsung components exclusively. This is a refreshing change from the legions of SandForce clones out there but can they compete with the best drives we've tested and how will they stand up over time? We'll answer one and unveil our plan for the other in our review.
Overall, we were duly impressed with the 470 Series and it exceeded its rated specifications of 250MB/s reads and 220MB/s writes in nearly every benchmark we threw at it. With Samsung being a relatively new player in the consumer SSD market, they are getting off to a great start. Samsung really surprised us with their 256GB 470 Series solid state drive. It performed above expectations on nearly every benchmark and kept pace with the SandForce drives that seem to the darling of the industry right now.
