OWC Mercury EXTREME Pro 6G 240GB SSD Review

We recently had a look at the 120 GB version of the OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G and found it to be a very capable drive that competed with the top drives in its class. Now we've got our hands on the 240 GB version and did our usual tests to determine the overall performance. You might be surprised at the results we received - we were. Have a look at the article to see what we are talking about.


The SandForce SF-2200 controller does all the heavy lifting, pushing out listed reads of 559MB/s and writes of 527MB/s. This is almost exactly what we saw on the benchmarks in terms of max performance so OWC was true to their specifications. Fresh off of testing the OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS 240 GB drive we felt others would have a tough time topping its performance but OWC came through with a drive that eked out better scores more often than not. OWC is going to garner a lot of attention if they keep putting out products like the 240 GB Mercury EXTREME Pro 6g SSD as we found it to be the best overall performing SATA III drive we have tested to date...
