Part 1 of 3 – Intel, Sandforce

** Updated 07 Jul 2010 ** Tired of bouncing back and forth between review sites, manufacturer sites, and retailers in search of your next SSD? Allyn has compiled a huge list of all current and popular SSD’s, grouped by controller type, manufacturer, and model.
In the process of conducting my SSD research and reviews, I have compiled a bit of a rough spreadsheet to help me sort through the mish mash of various SSD models.  A while ago it occurred to me this would be greatly helpful to our readers, so I polished it up into a more coherent and easily searchable reference.

This is largely a work in progress, and I will be continuously updating this chart as new drives are released and tested.  Feel free to bookmark this page for your future reference.  So without further delay, here is what you’ve all been looking for!

Note: You can also reach this page by surfing to the direct link: http://www.pcper.com/ssd.

Since posting this table, I have added a page to help guide you in your selection.  See page 3 of this article for the goods.
