Silicon Power Extreme E25 128GB Review

AS-SSD VER. 1.6

AS-SSD Benchmark is a lightweight application that is designed to provide a simple means of evaluating the performance of SSDs. The tool contains six synthetic and three copy tests. The synthetic tests to determine the sequential and random read and write performance of the SSD. These tests are carried out without use of the operating system caches.The program comes with a copy benchmark as well as one for compression and it can also be used with hard disk drives.

It took a bit for the DRAM cache to kick in, as the write speeds had initially dropped down to 170MB/s; once it did however, the performance revealed to be identical to that show in other benchmarks.

ANVIL STORAGE UTILITIES VER. 1.0.44 RC1

Anvils Storage Utilities is a powerful tool that is designed in to provide a simple means of assessing the read and write performance of a solid state drive.

Always providing the most comprehensive test results, Anvil confirms what we have been seeing all along. The Silicon Power Extreme E25 is more of a budget SATA 2.0 SSD, but performs surprisingly well compared to the Torqx 2, despite the fact both use virtually identical interior components.

PCMARK VANTAGE PROFESSIONAL X64 VER. 1.0.2.0

PCMark Vantage measures PCMarks as an indicator of performance across a variety of common tasks such as viewing and editing photos, video, music and other media, gaming, communications, productivity and security.

PCMV scores for the Silicon Power E25 128GB are somewhat mediocre. They are not bad, but again, should be higher compared to todays standards.

This SSD is on German markt for around 70€ to have, its even cheaper than crucial v4 (85€) for the same capacity. The benchmark numbers look nice, especial the low QD 4k read/write ones.

Here is the link: http://www.future-x.de/futurex/silicon-power-extreme-serie-e25-solid-state-disk-ssd-2-5-sata-ii-128-gb-p-44006/?pv=24

I think, its quite competive to crucial v4 using the same PHISON controller. E25’s hardware ist alot better: 32nm toshiba nand vs 25nm micron, 512MB DDR2 Cache vs 128MB DDR of Crucial v4
