RunCore Pro V MAX 240GB Solid State Drive Preview

Just like the original Pro V, the Pro V MAX model is shipping in 60GB, 120GB, 240GB and a massive 480GB capacity size.

RunCore claims a maximum read speed of 560MB/s and a maximum write speed of 525MB/s. The actual performance is higher than the specs say, which is always a good thing. Users should be happy to see this. This hard drive blows the competition out of the water when it comes to input/output speed, and is idea for performance and data recovery.

The Pro V MAX uses a 2.5" form factor that is 9.5mm high. RunCore just announced a new 7mm z-height drive, but this is not it. Our test sample arrived OEM style - no retail box, desktop adapter bracket, SATA cable or documentation, but all of these are included with the retail drive.

Also included is a software package that is pre-installed on the drive itself. You can download special drivers from their website, which may be needed for installation of an operating system. If the hard drive crashes or fails, you can use a special software driver to help recover lost data.

At the time of writing the new Pro V MAX is a new product for RunCore and not many are available in the wild. MyDigitalDiscount.com has the 240GB model that we are looking at today listed at $469.99, but we look for this price to change soon.
