Mo­bile Drive Mg SSD 128GB

Mac Format - - RATED - £94 Man­u­fac­turer Freecom, freecom.com

3 Un­like SSDs we’ve seen re­cently, this one is sim­i­lar in size to a 2.5-inch hard drive. The 128GB ver­sion we tested gave pretty much iden­ti­cal trans­fer rates to Freecom’s com­pact 256GB mSSD (see MF275). It peaked at 435.1MB/ sec­ond when read­ing se­quen­tially, and per­formed well in tough ran­dom trans­fers of small data, though it isn’t quite a match for the fastest por­ta­ble SSDs we’ve tested. The real stick­ing point is pay­ing more than £90 for 128GB when Tran­scend’s ESD400 (see MF278) of­fers sim­i­lar per­for­mance for £67. Alan Stone­bridge

Freecom’s drive per­forms as well as we’d ex­pect from a USB 3.0 SSD, yet has some­what old­fash­ioned phys­i­cal di­men­sions.
