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 Crucial 128GB MX100 has the smallest capacity and is the slowest of the MX100 range. Comparing the 128GB and 256GB MX100s shows that the 256GB version has a 75% faster write speed. Within the MX100 range write speeds scale linearly with capacity, as a consequence, the 128GB version struggles to compete with similarly priced drives from other manufacturers. On the other hand, the 512GB version and to a lesser extent the 256GB version offer far better value for money. Overall the MX100 has an effective speed which is amongst the top 30% of 128GB drives so its not bad by any means but there are however both cheaper and faster alternatives available in the now extremely competitive 128GB SSD category. [Oct '14 SSDrivePro]
