We tested five different 2.5”, SATA-3 replacement drives and found that we could not crack their encryption. We also found that the drives delivered speeds that were up to five times faster than the Hitachi hard drive that came with our Lenovo laptop.
OCZ Deneva 2
We ran 12 performance tests, including two sequential read/writes and 10 random read/writes, using the CrystalDiskMark tool on a laptop running Windows 7. The Deneva 2 drive was similar to the OWC drive, but a tad slower. The Deneva 2 costs $650 (£418) for a 240GB drive.
