The only thing we can really complain about is the lack of worldwide and US resellers carrying Comay Venus Pro 3 products. Well, that and the desktop adapter bracket... we always like to see those included. Over time we think the Comay brand will start to pop up at more and more e-tail sites. If I wasn't about to pick up another Ducati, I'd buy a 100 drives and we'd sell them here on TweakTown. On second thought, no I wouldn't because who would want to send TweakTown sample SSDs if we were selling them? The small conflict of interest thing might get in the way of our progress. Heh.
Let's talk performance first. With the SandForce 3.3.2 firmware, we get solid 3.3.2 performance from a drive that is reliable. The Comay Venus Pro 3 delivers average to a little higher than average performance for its class, our tongue in cheek Team SandForce drive. There is nothing wrong with that, in most capacity sizes the Team SandForce option is the fastest available consumer drive on the market. In the 120GB capacity size though, that title goes to the Plextor M3 Pro, but the Venus Pro 3 is very close to the M3 Pro performance.
The big draw for this drive will obviously be the inclusion of the enterprise power scheme. It's what makes the Venus Pro 3 unique. Since this feature started out in the enterprise and now more enterprise users are taking advantage of consumer low-cost SSDs, I can see the database guys eating these up. To a lesser extent, notebook users may find benefit from the Comay Venus Pro 3 power features as well. Notebooks tend to get us in trouble at least once a year when someone unplugs the power and the battery slowly dies taking that review we're working on with it. At least with the host power loss protection, the chances of the document being stored on the flash increases. Also, the switch between unplugged and plugged in can do odd things to sensitive components, an area we'd worry less about with the Venus Pro 3.
Still though, it all comes back to availability. If you can't buy one, you can't own one and that is where we are at right now. Hopefully Comay gets their products out to distributers and e-tail shops so that issue can be taken off the table. I really like the two drives I have here and I think you would enjoy them as well.
