PNY Pro Elite 1TB External SSD Drive 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.
  • 21GB 8K Movie demos.
  • 11GB 4K Raw Movie Clips (8 MP4V files).

The Pro Elite didn't have any real problems dealing with our real life file transfer tests, with most read transfers hitting the 450+MB/s mark and 500GB on a couple of occasions. It handles larger file sizes much more efficiently than smaller ones that make up the 60GB Steam, 50GB File and 10GB Audio folders.
