Across the board, the Performance Pro 256 GB drive offers excellent performance. It easily reaches its rated speeds of up to 515 MB/s sequential read and 440 MB/s sequential write in the ATTO testing. What is more impressive, are its results in CrystalDiskMark and AS SSD, where the Performance Pro delivered the highest performance of any non-RAID drive I have looked at so far. In the IO Meter testing, the Performance Pro was easily the highest performing drive once again. Corsair and Marvell have put together a drive that just flat-out delivers. Priced competitively at $419, the 256 GB Corsair Performance Pro drive easily makes the short list. It`s priced right, delivers awesome performance, is built with high-end performance in mind, and comes with a 3 year warranty."
