OWC Mercury Electra 960GB — Photoshop CS6 diglloydMedium

The OWC Mercury Electra 960GB SSD was fast enough to beat out the OWC 480GB 6G SSD when used in a Mac Pro as the Photoshop scratch disk, showing that it is an error to assume that a 3G device is slower than a 6G SSD with real tasks.

The Electra 960GB is actually a RAID-0 stripe internally, which accounts for its unflappable high performance with both compressible and incompressible data.

All variants of the Mercury Accelsior PCIe SSD are faster, but that is expected, since the Accelsior has no SATA speed limits as do the standard drive bays and they too are internally RAID-0 striped.

Point is, the Electra 3G 960GB comes in a standard 2.5" drive package, for use in just about any computer (except the latest Apple MacBook Pro Retina, which does not take standard drives).
