The Daily Mirror offered an extremely positive review of the P44 Pro (1TB), awarding the drive a five-star rating. Communities Editor Stefan Mieszek even went so far as to say he thought Solidigm had been ”conservative” in its performance specifications and how he was surprised with the results.
- Windows Boot Test – Restarting a machine with Windows installed, the computer booted up in an average of 10.54 seconds, which Mieszek called “exceptionally quick”
- Persona 5 Royal from Steam – The menu for this popular role-playing game on the Steam platform loaded in just 5.63 seconds. “This is again exceptionally quick,” wrote Meiszek.
- CrystalDiskMark - this sequential read/write benchmark closely simulates everyday usage. The P44 Pro demonstrated a read speed of 7109.96 MB/s, and a write speed of 6674.91. MB/s. “These are exceptionally high speeds, with the read speed surpassing most cheaper or similarly priced drives,” wrote Meiszek.
The conclusion? “The Solidigm P44 Pro is a great drive that stands up against the big boys with no difficulty. It's easy to install, looks good, and appears to be built to last - particularly when you take note of the 750 TBW or 5-year warranty.”
