Conclusions

Analyzing the data obtained on our tests, the first conclusion is that the WD Green 240 GiB does not present performace drop with uncompressible data, due to its controller that does not rely on data compression to achieve higher speeds.

Compared to the Kingston SSDNow UV400 240 GiB and to the SanDisk SSD PLUS 240 GiB, we can say the WD Green 240 GiB was similar on some tests, faster on other ones, and slower on another ones. So, we can say it performs similarly to the other tested models.

So, we believe the WD Green 240 GiB is a good choice for the home user that is looking for an inexpensive SSD to use as a boot drive for a desktop or laptop. However, because of its technical characteristics, it is not recommended on applications where there is a lot of writing operations everyday, where you need to choose a more expensive drive.
