T-Force DELTA RGB SSD Review | 250GB 5V ARGB SSD
There are several storage variants as well, starting from 250GB, 500GB and 1TB. It comes in both black and white colour options. The ARGB part uses the VDG 3-pin header or the 5 Volt RGB header on your motherboard so, do check if its compatible though worry not as T-Force also has 12 Volt variant as well. Newer motherboards will have the 5V header.
We will take a look at the 250GB variant today, which uses a 3D TLC NAND Flash that is rated to last 60 Terabytes Written (TBW). I wish it was more but then again, gaming is all about reading speed and rarely continuous writing. The rated read speed is 560MB/s with a write speed of 500MB/s. To get the 510MB/s write speed you have to jump to the 1TB capacity. So, now let’s jump into benchmarks.
Throughout my testing, Crystal Disk Mark does show it can perform as advertised with stable readings from ATTO Benchmark and Black Magic Speed Test. This SSD is for people who desire to add some aesthetics and colour into their PC case. It is brighter than most RGB fans and LED strips in the market. Although my tinted Thermaltake A500 Case cuts down on brightness, you’ll still see more colour than usual.
This is fully addressable RGB, meaning that you can use compatible controllers or motherboard RGB headers to play around with lighting effects, creating unlimited possibilities. Even third party ones with 5V header hubs.

I strongly recommend gamers to get this and not content creators. As creators needs rapid and regular write cycles as the TBW on this SSD is rather small. Again, it won’t affect gaming performance since it’s mainly about the reading cycle. Games will perform excellently.
