PNY Elite 960GB External SSD Review

To test real-life performance of a drive we use a mix of folder/file types and by using the FastCopy utility (which gives a time as well as MB/s result) we record the performance of drive reading from & writing to a 256GB Samsung SSD850 PRO.

We use the following folder/file types:

  • 100GB data file.
  • 60GB iso image.
  • 60GB Steam folder – 29,521 files.
  • 50GB File folder – 28,523 files.
  • 12GB Movie folder – 24 files (mix of Blu-ray and 4K files).
  • 10GB Photo folder – 621 files (mix of .png, raw and .jpeg images).
  • 10GB Audio folder – 1,483 files (mix of mp3 and .flac files).
  • 5GB (1.5bn pixel) photo.
  • BluRay Movie – 42GB
  • 21GB 8K Movie demos (11 demos)
  • 16GB 4K Raw Movie Clips (9 MP4V files).
  • 4.25GB 3D Printer File Folder.
  • 1.5GB AutoCAD File Folder.

The 960GB Elite didn’t have any real problems dealing with our real-life file transfer tests. It handles larger file sizes much more efficiently than smaller ones that make up the 60GB Steam, 50GB File and 10GB Audio folders.
