The power consumption results aren't impressive. In fact, the Mtron Flash SSD requires at least twice the power than the Samsung or SanDisk drives. Be prepared for a marginal reduction in battery runtime if you install the Mtron drive into your notebook. For high-performance desktops and servers, however, this power requirement is still amazingly low. Compared to the 15-20 W of a 3.5" SAS hard drive at 15,000 RPM; the little drives by Mtron deliver much more I/O performance per Watt.
