The 240GB Kingston HyperX Savage sports a Phison PS3110 controller. This marks a welcome departure from Kingston's use of Sandforce 2281 controllers and for the first time in years gives Kinston a shot at competing in the enthusiast/performance segment of the SSD market. Comparing the HyperX Savage and Fury shows that the new Phision controller has an effective speed that is around 40% faster than the Sandforce based Fury. But then comparing the similarly priced OCZ Vertex 460a and Savage shows that, although the overall effective speeds are similar, the Vertex has three times faster 4K Mixed IO speeds. The HyperX Savage is very good for typical consumer use but power users with more demanding I/O loads should probably look elsewhere. [Jun '15 SSDrivePro]

The 250GB Crucial BX100 SSD is the value orientated variant of Crucial's M range of SSDs. The BX100 uses the same NAND as its premium MX200 sibling but the BX100 uses a Silicon Motion controller as opposed to the Marvel controller found in the MX range. Feature wise the BX100 is missing SLC caching and there is no hardware encryption (so security frameworks such as windows Bitlocker will operate less efficiently). In terms of I/O performance the BX100 looks promising. Comparing the BX100 and MX100 shows that the newer BX100 may be faster than its predecessor but as yet there are insufficient user benchmarks to draw any definitive conclusions. The BX100 has only just started hitting the shelves so there's plenty of room for price reductions from its already reasonable price tag. I will revisit this review when I have more performance data for the BX100. [Jan '15 SSDrivePro]
