Features    [ Edit | History ]

Performance Pro Series SSDs tap into the power of the Marvell SATA 6 Gb/s controller for reliable performance across multiple platforms and PC configurations.

With an impressive ATTO Max performance of up to 515MB/s Sequential Read and 440 MB/s Sequential Write, Performance Pro Series solid-state drives offer incredibly fast boot and application load times that will make you wonder why anybody still uses old-fashioned mechanical hard drives. This isn't just limited to files that can be compressed and decompressed on the fly Performance Pro Series SSDs offer similar performance when reading and writing compressed and non-compressible data. Since serious PC users work with so much compressed data audio, images, and video files are just a few examples it's a difference you'll notice every day.

With full support for the TRIM command, you'll get great performance under Microsoft Windows 7. Performance Pro Series goes one step further, with built-in advanced background garbage collection. It automatically uses idle time to optimize data storage, so that disk writes are consistently fast. Since this technology is built-in, you'll get strong performance with Mac OS X and Linux as well.

Experience: 10 Months
Fantastic incompressible data transfer rates
Its a one way ticket into SSD land, you will never be able to live with a regular HD again.
This is a fantastic SSD, with its Marvel controller there are none of the issues that have plagued the Sandforce drives. The drive maintains an awesome transfer rate 350 MB/s read and write regardless of whether or not the data is compressible.

Experience: 1 Weeks

Good speed. No SandForce issues. No firmware updating required.
Only marginally slower than SF based SSD's. I can't even notice the difference outside of benchmarks.
After numerous headaches with SF-based SSD's, I tried the Corsair Performance line and was pleased with it. Then I upgraded to the Performance Pro line and this is easily the best SSD I've bought.

Performance is very close to what I was getting with glitchy SandForce drives, but just the peace of mind and no random blue-screens more than makes-up for the difference. Highly recommend it.

Comment: Overall Corsair has done an excellent job with its "Marvell option," and we can certainly see why the Performance Pro SSDs have become such a hot item.

Comment: In a relatively short period of time Corsair has developed quite the demanding presence and sterling reputation in certain SSD circles. With a varied line up and a wide array of NAND and controllers to differentiate their various models from those of the competition, they seem to have what it takes
