Rating: 8.0.

Already well known as a manufacturer of Flash NAND, SK hynix are certainly working on ramping up their presence in the SSD market with their own drives. Hard on the heels of the Enterprise-focused SE3010 that we examined recently comes the latest addition to the Canvas consumer range – the SL308. Aimed more towards the entry level end of the consumer space, the SL308 uses low-cost TLC memory in combination with an SK hynix controller.
