6.9 Out of 10

Sequential read performance with incompressible data of 514MB/s is very near the top of the pile and writes of 469MB/s are also far from shabby.

Normally we'd give an SSD the nod for that alone, but the tight grouping of all the drives in those benchmarks makes it clear that SSD performance has now gotten the better of those parts of our test suite.

Something other than drive performance is putting a cap on the real world tests.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Performance

It doesn't affect the straight performance, but the random speed suffers.
by Tech Radar (Aug, 2013)
However, the Q Series is very marginally the fastest drive in both of our real-world application tests.
