This is Seagate's third foray into the the SSD market and it's clear from the specifications that Seagate haven't taken any chances. The 600 incorporates the now reasonably established LAMD LM87800 controller coupled with 19 NM Toshiba MLC, a very similar combination to Corsair's Neutron GTX. This combination of hardware coupled with Seagate's custom firmware produces a very solid set of performance figures. With a Real World Performance rating of 531 MB/s and an AS SSD total score of 1131 the Seagate 600 demonstrates both superb server and consumer performance capabilities. The pricing on the 600 is currently around average for a group leading SSD and likely to drop with time as the 600 is still relatively recent. Overall the 240GB Seagate 600 represents good value for money and delivers great performance. [Aug '13 SSDrivePro]
