We use SATA DOMs a few times a month in many of the NAS products we test. I’ve pulled two SATA DOMs in the past to run tests on their performance, but both times we killed the drive. SATA DOMs are not built for high write environments, and CrystalDiskMark’s 4K write test is all it takes to kill a regular SATA DOM.

Anytime you have “extreme” in your company name you have to do things a little differently, a little better, and stand behind the claims. Mach Xtreme has made a name for itself in Europe for selling reliable performance SSDs. The company has limited penetration on this side of the pond, but with the SATA DOM, we think that will change with a select group of customers.
