Having a more detailed look at the performance, we see that the Q300 Pro does perfectly well in these tests. According to our measurements sequential throughputs are 524 MB/s in the case of writing and 539 MB/s when testing sequential read capabilities. Also regarding IOPS performance the Q300 Pro does well, managing 77’900/93’900 random write/read IOPS. Looking at IOPS in the case of queue depth 1 we measured 34’400 regarding write and 4’900 regarding read. What we like was the strong sequential performance at QD1 which was 498/443 MB/s write/read.
Meanwhile it’s about time to start talking about the price. The Q300 Pro is available with three different capacities: 128/256/512 GB and these days the corresponding prices are 57/104/197 Euro. This means the price per gigabyte is 0.45/0.41/0.38 Euro respectively. Overall these are not cheap drives. Since the Q300 Pro is based on MLC memory it is to compete with for example the 850 Pro from Samsung and that it’s definitely capable of, coming at almost the same price – the smaller capacity drive are a little bit cheaper and the 512 GB model is tiny bit more – with very well comparable performance.
Overall the Q300 Pro from Toshiba is a solid alterantive when it comes to MLC SSDs, which we can definitely recommend should you be looking for a quick and reliable MLC-based SSD.
