In many corner case tests, the Toshiba Q Series Pro was either at the top or close to the top performance wise. The 256GB class drive only has a few places where performance slides, but equally, the drive has a few places where the performance is better than anything else.
The real story isn't just about performance, and it shouldn't be either. The real story is the performance at cost. The overall value for the Q Series Pro is high, but that's mainly due to the very low price of $158.85 at the time of writing, and the level of performance offered. It would be nice if the same package also included a desktop adapter bracket and a SATA cable, at the same price.
Toshiba has mainly focused on the OEM market, but made a run with the Q Series, and now the Q Series Pro. From a market share point of view, I don't think it worked out too well, even when they have a product with great performance like the one we looked at today. Acquiring OCZ will instantly boost Toshiba's street knowledge when it comes to the retail market, even with OCZ as a subsidiary.
All things considered, and looking at what really matters for the Q Series Pro, this is a really good drive that's available for an excellent price. At this point, the Q Series Pro is the best option for those looking for value and performance.
