AJA VIDEO SYSTEM DISK TEST
The AJA Video Systems Disk Test is relatively new to our testing and tests the transfer speed of video files with different resolutions and Codec.
TxBench is one of our newly discovered benchmarks that we works much the same as Crystal Diskmark, but with several other features. Advanced load benchmarking can be configured, as well as full drive information and data erasing via secure erase, enhanced secure erase, TRIM and overwriting.

SSD Maintenance and performance enhancements are available through download of Crucial’s SSD Storage Executive by clicking on the link through the title above. This software package is one of the better SSD tools we have come across and includes such things as the ability to sanitize the SSD, increase performance through Momentum Cache, or even adjust over-provisioning.
REVIEW ANALYSIS AND FINAL THOUGHTS
Considering the price point Crucial established for the Crucial P2, it’s a shame they limited capacities to 250 and 500GB. I understand their direction as they were aiming straight for those making the SSD transition, but it would have been great to see 1/2TB pricing for the P2. The SSD has value, a 5-year warranty and performance is what can be expected for an entry level SSD of this caliber, 2100MB/s read and 1800MB/s write.
As for any benchmark anomalies, it sometimes occurs where a certain SSD doesn’t quite give us what we want from that software. And that is why we include several programs. Overall, however, the SSD appears to be a decent entry level SSD from a very reliable company, and the software that goes along with it is very well put together.
