The G.Skill Falcon arrives in a fairly simple box with a logo looking like a flying Falcon. On the back we highlight the key features and specifications. The side of the box gives a repeat of the name and drive size, 2.5″.

Inside the white box was a foam box protecting the Falcon SSD.

In addition to the drive, G.Skill provides a jumper pin that can be used to update the firmware. As of May 5, 2009, there has been a patch offered by G.Skill to provide the TRIM command.

The Falcon SSD is pretty much your standard 2.5″ hard drive. There are three models in the Falcon family and they will all look identical with the exception of the sticker indicating the drive capacity on the front and back.

It’s clearly stated that the drive is capable of 230MB/s Read and 135MB/s write. However, we already know SSDs back in the days of JMicron controllers were fast. The question becomes can they withstand the test of time and continue to provide high speeds after months of use or once the drive has been filled up?

The Falcon uses standard hard drive connections and provides a jumper connection beside your SATA port for firmware updates.
