Just before CES we published our take on the Corsair Performance Series Pro 256GB model. The drive was very fast, even shattering our PCMark Vantage HDD test records for a single drive while empty.
Being a larger capacity size we compared the drive to the 240GB drives from Team SandForce products and again the Performance Pro performed well. The one area the 256GB Performance Pro didn't do so well in, well, let me first say in relation to the SF-2281 controlled drives, is when the drive was filled to 50% capacity. In this very important test the Performance Pro 256GB was a bit slower. So, to sum it up the 256GB Performance Pro was very fast, but not fast enough to take the performance crown in its capacity size group.
Today we're looking at the 128GB model. For me this review started out as another run-and-gun, get it over with because people will want to see it, but I won't be that impressed type of review. The drive sat on a shelf for a couple of days while I played Battlefield and tried to get over my post CES depression caused mainly by the fact that I can't get good steak back at home like I can get there. Now that I've tested this drive I feel much better, although it would be nice to get some good steak still.
So, if you are having steak withdraws and need something to cheer you up, get a Corsair Performance Pro 128GB. If you want to know why the Performance Pro 128GB is the first real challenger to the SF-2281 controlled 120GB drives on the market, then read on to find out.
