Silicon Power is a relatively new name in the storage industry. Founded in 2003 by a group of professionals specializing in international business, global marketing and technical engineering, the company has already established itself as one of Taiwan's top manufacturers. With an eye for attractive and versatile design, Silicon Power has built its brand around the concept that its customers deserve products that represent who they are in life and mirror their personality. The end result is a variety of uniquely designed storage products including USB flash drives, memory cards and solid-state drives (SSD).

One of the latest additions to Silicon Power's line of solid state drives is the US75. Designed for content-creators, power users and gamers, this compact, M.2 form factor drive is powered by Maxio Technology's MAP1602 controller and is available with up to 4TB of YMTC's 232-layer 3D TLC NAND flash. The US75 also features built-in data security and error-correction capabilities and is equipped with an ultra-fast PCIe Gen 4x4 NVMe 2.0 interface to deliver up to 7,000 MB/s read and 6,500 MB/s write speeds.

The US75 is available in 500GB, 1TB, 2TB and 4TB capacities. For this review, Silicon Power sent us the 1TB version of the drive which is capable of delivering up to 7,000 MB/s sequential read and 6,000 MB/s sequential write speeds.
