Written by Michael Larabel in Storage on 16 August 2015. Page 3 of 3. 7 Comments

The test results for the PNY CS1211 120GB SSD were a bit of a mixed bag. This value SSD performed very poorly for the Flexible I/O Tester but in the other tests, the CS1211 performed very well against the other budget solid-state drive competition. At the end of the day though it's just another budget solid-state drive with MLC flash memory and if you're engaging in any very serious disk workloads investing in a higher-end SSD would be a wise investment. For this particular system where the solid-state drive is now deployed, it's working out fine for its mostly CPU-focused workloads via the Phoronix Test Suite and Phoromatic.
