At four months old, the 128GB Toshiba Q Series Pro is the newest SSD in the group test. It's always nice to see new drives pushing established speed boundaries and the Q Series Pro does exactly that. With peak and average sequential read/write speeds of 521/481 and 422/333 MB/s the Q Series Pro beats the 128GB group average peak write speed by 45% and is bested only by the Samsung Evo. A particularly impressive aspect of the Q Series Pro's performance profile is its mixed IO performance where it beats the average of the group leaders by a stunning 50% and sets new sequential/4k mixed IO records of 502/40.4 MB/s. The ability to handle concurrent read and write operations well means that the Q Series Pro will rarely pause for breath, even when faced with varying IO demands, a great server orientated trait. Overall the Q Series Pro has a very robust performance profile and is well priced making it one of the top 128GB SSDs of 2014. [Feb '14 SSDrivePro]

The Kingston HyperX Fury has the same controller as its HyperX 3K sibling; the only difference between the two drives is the use of cheaper Micron 20nm NAND in the newer Fury. Comparing the performance differences between the HyperX Fury and 3K shows that the newer 20nm NAND results in an effective performance decrease of around 30% for a price saving of just 12%. The Fury was never aimed at the high performance sector of the market but given the known compressible performance weaknesses of its Sandforce 2281 controller and its relatively non-budget price tag, the 120GB Fury will struggle to find rational takers in today's market. There are far better value alternatives available for just a few more dollars. [Sep '14 SSDrivePro]
