SSD Consistency Testing - 18 Drives Tested for Real-World Performance

Final Thoughts




One final chart to look at. Here we see the average of all the tests in one chart. We can see the drives that drop in performance more than others, which drives recover faster, the performance after a large amount of idle time, and, finally, we get to see which drives offer solid performance regardless of wear state.


Of the drives tested, the Toshiba Q Series Pro (256GB), SanDisk Extreme II (240GB / 480GB), and Samsung 840 EVO (500GB) really stand out as the top performers. At this time, we don't have every drive tested nor do we have every capacity size tested. We do have the largest collection of consumer SSDs in the world, so each month we'll update the charts and release a new report based on our findings.


Over the next 45 days, we know of at least six new SSDs coming to market, many from the leaders in the SSD market. We expect the new drives to shake up the market in both performance and price.


Sadly, due to the length of this test and our other long tests, such as the notebook battery life test, we may not always be able to include this data in our standard reviews. When time allows, we will include the test.


Let us know your thoughts by commenting below. We look forward to hearing what you have to say.
