The BX200 is in other reviews seen as the lowest performer even if the price is low aswell, the prices are too high for the performance one get, if it's compared to other drives around the same price. Hell, the BX100 which is comparable, if not better, is cheaper, around £206.
So for those who want a cheap storage SSD, get the BX100 while the supplies last.
The BX200 suffers from massive performance drops when reading and writing to the SSD at the same time, also known as mixed sequential data rate
According to graphs from Anandtech, (so hard to get exact data)
Read/Write Percentage Data Rate Power Consumption
100/0% ~360MB/s ~2W
80/20% ~180MB/s ~2.2W
60/40% ~110MB/s ~2.4W
40/60% ~80MB/s ~4W
20/80% ~75MB/s ~4.3W
0/100% ~70MB/s ~4.4W
I remembered reading about this disk in early November, and being underwhelmed, so just thought I'd share why I found this reviews conclusion somewhat lacking.
Any SSD that lacks obvious errors(like this) is a major upgrade from any Harddrive, however when you can get a 1TB BX100 cheaper, which performs better, with a mixed sequential data rate that never drops below 220MB/s, and power draw that tops out at around 3.2W. I just can't understand why you'd give this a gold award.
