Runcore ProV Max 240GB 6Gbps SSD Review – The Gold SSD Earns The Gold Seal Once Again

Our SSD analysis today is of the Runcore ProV Max 240GB SATA 3 SSD.  Most recently, we reviewed the 120GB version of this same SSD and it did so well, we challenged Runcore to up their standing on our Hierarchy Chart as we know that 240GB SSDs have just that little bit more push in performance.

Runcore is a company that builds SSDs and SSDs only. Their forward and innovative thinking enabled some of our best reviews as was seen in our T50 mSATA SSD report; a personal fav.

SPECIFICATIONS

The Runcore ProV Max Series of SSDs are available in capacities of 60, 120, 240 and 480GB and listed specifications display 540MB/s read and 500MB/s write with 60,000 IOPS at 4k aligned random write disk access.  The ProV contains a SATA 3 interface which is fully compatible with SATA 2, has TRIM support and a three year standard warranty.

The package includes the SSD, a desktop adapter bracket, data cable, screws, installation instructions along with Runcores own Certification and two Runcore stickers.

PRO-V MAX COMPONENTS

The Runcore ProV Max printed circuit board (PCB) is protected by a gold exterior casing which is secured by four screws on the outside edges of the drive.  It contains a security patch over one of the screws to prevent tampering and any damage to this patch would immediately void ones warranty.

Situated on the PCB is the SandForce SF-2281 controller along with 16 pieces of Intel 25nm mlc NAND flash memory, eight on each side of the board.  Each module is 16GB in capacity for a total RAW capacity of 256GB.

A 16GB module is proprietary to the SSDs over provisioning and firmware needs which brings us down to the advertised capacity of 240GB.  Formatting then reduces it even further to an end user available capacity of 224GB.
