To ensure the repeatability of the drive’s performance and verify our results, each benchmark was repeated three times and the median result is being displayed in this review.

Editor’s note: For the Performance Pro drive to achieve its maximum performance, it needs to be connected to a SATA-3 port. Connecting the drive to a SATA-2 port will have a considerable negative impact on its performance.
