T-Force Vulcan G Solid State Drive Review

Final Thoughts

Now I mean this with no disrespect, but I’d say it’s safe to say that SATA SSDs aren’t as exciting as they once were. They are still far more exciting than your standard hard drive. Over the past several months, I’ve tested several different products from the T-Force lines up, and from Team Group in general. Like other products, the 512 GB T-Force Vulcan G SSD did not disappoint. The 512 GB T-Force Vulcan G SSD performed right where I had expected a SATA SSD to perform in 2020 having achieved a sequential read speed of 557.8 MB/s and a sequential write speed of 517.4 MB/s in Crystal Disk Mark. For all of the other benchmarks we ran, the read speeds stayed 520 MB/s on the read. However, in many of the benchmarks, the write speeds of our Vulcan G SSD did drop below 500 MB/s, this drive still had good write speeds overall.

When testing SATA SSDs, it’s really not all about performance anymore as we’ve gotten as much performance out of the SATA interface and have moved on to now PCIe Gen 4 NVMe drives. So there are other factors to take into consideration when purchasing a drive. The T-Force Vulcan G SSD comes with a 3-year warranty, which seems to be the standard for SATA SSDs, though some do have up to a 5-year warranty. I can say the little I’ve had to deal with customer service with Team Group, I’ve had great experiences, even as a general consumer. One of the biggest things to take into consideration when buying an SSD is the price. At the time of this review, the 512 Gb variant of the T-Force Vulcan G SSD is selling for $49.99 on Amazon. Compare this to the 512 GB San Disk SSD Plus for $64.99 or the 500 GB Samsung 860 Evo and personally, I’d go for the Vulcan G SSD for $15-$20 less any day of the week.

So, if you’re in the market for an SSD to either expand your storage or for a new build, the 512 GB T-Force Vulcan G SSD is a solid option at a great price. With the combination of price to performance, Thinkcomputers gives the 512 GB T-Force Vulcan G SSD an 8 out of 10 score.
