Corsair Performance Pro 

Released November, 2011
  • 128 GB
  • 2.5" SATA III

The Corsair Performance Pro may not be the cheapest 128GB solid-state drive around, but it's stunning when it comes to providing overall performance.

Since the drive doesn't use any of its capacity for over-provisioning, the only space you lose is to Windows formatting, which reduces the drives capacity to 119GB.

Reviews Word on the street for the Corsair Performance Pro


9.7
In terms of price/performance the drive easily claims a leading spot, despite its $400 price mark.

9.0
That larger model comes with higher quoted sequential read/write figures of 515MB/s and 440MB/s respectively, and a price tag of around £280 if you shop around.

Overall

9.1 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Performance

9.7It looks like Corsair did some magic tweaks to the Marvell controller's firmware, as their Performance Pro 256 GB is the fastest SSD we tested so far.

Fastest drive we tested so far, beats Sandforce-driven drives.

Cache

Corsair is using (only) eight flash chips and two DRAM cache chips for the Marvell controller.

This controller is joined by some speedy Toshiba Toggle NAND memory and a large chunk of cache, giving the drive some stunning performance figures.

Price

You can find some high-performance Sandforce SF-2281 240 GB drives at well below $350, so it wouldn't hurt if Corsair adjusted their price to something like $375 or below.
