MemoRight MS-701 240GB mSATA Solid State Drive Review

Rating: 9.0.

Today we are looking at the MemoRight MS-701 240GB Solid State Drive – built around the mSATA form factor. Is it particularly interesting because this is one of the few 240GB capacity SATA 3 SandForce powered mSATA drives available on the market today.

There is no doubt that mSATA is growing in popularity. It is included as an option now on many of the latest full sized motherboards and available on some high end laptops, such as the Dell Precision M6600. It is ideal when used a boot drive option, leaving many laptops with two additional SATA slots free for larger, mechanical drives.

Memoright have been promoting their MS-700 and MS-701 series now for some time. The MS-700 family is SATA 2 capable, available in capacities of 30GB and 60GB. The MS-701 is SATA 3 capable and the ‘performance’ oriented family available in 30GB, 60GB, 120GB and 240GB capacities.

We are looking at the largest member of the family today, rated at 550 MB/s read and 500 MB/s write. The company rate the drive at 25,000 IOPS when dealing with a 4k random aligned write test.
