The new Sony SLW-MG2 is their first attempt into the SSD market. With a review unit available, we wanted to put the unit to the test, and find out how well can this SSD perform. We also wanted to find out if these drives can bring real value to consumers and if it live up to its stated specifications. Moreover we want to determine if the attractive S$139 price tag on the 240GB model is a real deal.

Final Thoughts and Conclusion
It was seen as an erratic move from Sony to enter the SSD market, which is largely dominated by memory manufacturers like Samsung and Micron. Sony was probably trying to test the waters with the name of their brand, in order to reach out consumers who are not in the tech scene. The first SSD product “from” Sony hits the sweet spot between performance and price.
By providing a good value to consumers who wants to hop onto the SSD bandwagon, the Sony SLW-MG2(240GB) or SLW-MG4(480GB) will be a good choice. It performs up to expectations and is comparably easy on the wallet. Therefore, we will definitely recommend this new SSD if you are looking for something to improve your computer’s performance.
Available in two capacities, 240GB (SLW-MG2) and 480GB (SLW-MG4), the new SLW-M internal SSD is now available at all Sony Stores at the recommended retail prices of S$139 and S$259, respectively.
