32GB SSD comparison, Buffalo vs. Patriot

Hello,

which would be faster when accessed from a single application, read-only, with mixed large and small reads?

Buffalo Solid-State Disk 2,5" 32 GB
SHD-NSUM32G

vs

Patriot Warp 2,5" SSD 32 GB
PE32GS25SSD

Thank you.

  1. The Patriot appears to be SLC, while Buffalo is MLC. I couldn't figure out what controller they are using though.

    For reading, any SSD should be fine. For writing, you need an SSD with a good controller; there are only 4 controllers of which 2 are good:
    - Intel controller (best)
    - Indilinx controller
    - Samsung controller
    - JMicron controller (worst)

    Note that Intel X25-M SSD is by far the best SSD right now; but if you don't have the budget for it and you do not write to the SSD after initial setup only reading, then an SSD with simple controller should suffice. I would pick the SLC based SSD.

    But any SSD of this class will have a bad price-quality ratio.

    SLC costs!
    It only benefits from random read/writes of small files.

    If you read only, get an MLC drive, which can cost less than half the price of an SLC drive!
