Specifications, Pricing and Availability
Toshiba released the Q Series Pro in three capacity sizes, 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB. Today we're looking at the 256GB model in a 2.5" form factor, but later this month we'll publish the M.2 SATA form factor in 512GB.
The claimed performance over SATA III is 554 MB/s sequential read, and 512 MB/s sequential write speeds. Toshiba doesn't give random 4K IOPS numbers on the official product page, but we'll build that piece of the puzzle today.
The Q Series Pro uses a 7mm z-height for Ultrabooks, and includes a 7mm to 9.5mm adapter for use in drive sleds that require standard 2.5" HDD heights. The adapter is the only accessory in the package, but Toshiba does back the drive with a three-year warranty.
The price is just as important as the performance. At the time of writing, the Q Series Pro was available at Amazon in all three capacity sizes. The 128GB price was $98.99, 256GB was $158.85, and the 512GB was at $398.41. The largest capacity size doesn't have the same value as the two smaller drives, but its price is pretty good.
