If you have yet to read about our new worst case / recovery test, please feel free to do so. We are oversimplifying a complicated test in this section.

 

The M550 architecture fairs very well in our new advanced test in other capacity sizes but not in the 128GB capacity size. The M550, even if much better than the M500, still runs behind many of the other 128GB class drives in all three markers.
