Corsair 128GB Nova Series SSD

The read speeds alone of this drive is astonishing. It seems the only handicap the Nova drive has is during the 4K writes where it does bog down a bit, but that is it. During sequential reads, the performance once again screams. The Indilix Barefoot controller and the 64MB cache, combined with the fast MLC flash, the Corsair Nova is one of, if not the best drive tested to date.
