The Performance Pro Series SSD was announced on November 10, 2011 by Corsair for release in a 128GB and 256GB version. These solid state drives employ a Marvell SATA III 6Gbs controller that can reach read and write speeds of up to 515MBs sequential read/440 MBs sequential write in the 256GB version, and 500 MBs sequential read/340 MBs sequential write in the 128GB version. Built in maintenance function similar to TRIM support found in computer operating systems lets the Performance Pro Series SSD's perform their own waste management, keeping them running at maximum efficiency without wasting unused memory blocks as well as allowing multiple drives to be used in RAID formation. 2.5 inch form factor is ideal for use in mobile computers, while an included adapter makes for compatibility with the desktop standard 3.5 inch bay. Although made with the more recent SATA 3 controller, they are backwards compatible with SATA 2 ports as well. Like all SSD drives they have a long life expectancy or MTBF (mean time before failure) of 1.5 million hours of use, as well as a shock sustainability of up to 1500 G's.
