GALAX’s Friendly Introduction into the SSD World

The highly formidable manufacturer of several OEM gaming graphics cards has decided to make themselves known in the SSD world by serving the GAMER SSD L series on the platter. GALAX, who released the GAMER SSD L 120GB two years ago, has upsized the SSD to 240GB to make it a lot more competitive in the SSD market.

The GAMER SSD L 240GB, much like the 120GB version, seems a bit too old-fashioned for my taste. This solid-state drive is just a plain black device with a GAMER logo on the front that has a “thin crust” feel on it even with the plastic aluminum finish. Surprisingly, GALAX focused on designing it compactly instead of creating such cheeky features. Overall, the GALAX GAMER SSD L 240GB is plain and bold with no intention to establish some gimmicky points.

Speaking of points, there are other focal aspects that the GAMER SSD L 240GB that should be seriously looked at. Here they are, as per GALAX:
• Advanced Quad Core PS3110-S10
• Large file transfer up to 400% faster
• Lightning fast random read speed
• Pure silent operation with zero decibel noise output
• MTBF rating of 1 million hours with 1500G shock resistance
• Safe from the upshots of magnetism
• Award-winning energy efficiency
• Enterprise-standard high temperature burn-in process
• Support for TRIM, SMART

We tested the GALAX GAMER SSD L 240GB using the CrystalDiskMark in a series of 5 sequential reads and writes, and this is what we’ve got:


Verdict: 4/5
By the looks of things, the GALAX GAMER SSD L 240GB has an above average speed of sequential read and write for a solid-state drive. Surely, this SSD has proven its stated features above but this isn’t your target if you’re looking for a crazy fast, high-end storage product for your gaming rig. Looking from atop, I do not complain how it performed in real-time, as it delivered a decent performance of transferring files back and forth. It’s just that the 240GB isn’t enough if you want to stagger the big guys in the SSD market. In all honesty, I still consider the GALAX GAMER SSD L 240GB as a good option if you’re not the kind of gamer who forcefully fits giraffes inside your storage.
