The PNY CS1211 120GB solid-state drive retails for under $60 USD and is one of this memory company's value SSD lines.

The PNY CS1211 120GB version (SSD7CS1211-120-RB) claims maximum sequential reads up to 505MB/s, maximum sequential writes up to 310MB/s, random reads up to 79k IOPS, and random writes up to 73k IOPS. This value SSD uses a Silicon Motion SM2246EN controller and MLC flash chips, as do the 240GB and 480GB versions of this solid-state drive.

As with the other recent solid-state drives tested on Phoronix, the PNY CS1211 was another purchase for one of the test systems at Phoronix. This 120GB drive offered sufficient storage capacity for that particular system's needs, that system isn't running any crazy disk workloads every day, and overall looked like a decent SSD. I've been using the PNY CS1211 for a few weeks now and have been happy with it thus far. PNY backs this drive with a three-year warranty.

Prior to commissioning this drive in its test system, I did run a number of disk benchmarks on it similar to the other recently tested SSDs at Phoronix. All of the disk benchmarks were done via the Phoronix Test Suite.

On the following pages are the benchmark results under Ubuntu 15.04 with the Linux 4.2 kernel and using an EXT4 file-system.
