When we reviewed the Gold P31, we gave it a 4.5 out of 5 stars and an Editors’ Choice Award. What we loved most about this drive was its zippy performance and affordable price point. “The SK Hynix Gold P31 offers top-tier performance for a surprisingly affordable price. This one comes highly recommended,” we said.
The Gold P31 features sequential read speeds up to 3,500 megabytes per second and write speeds up to 3,200 MB/s. In our tests of the 1TB version, we got similar results with sequential reads at 3,521 MB/s and sequential writes much faster than the company claims at 3,457 MB/s. We also tested the 2TB version and found that they offered similar performance to the 1TB version.
The Gold P31 comes with a five-year warranty and its mean-time before failure is rated at 1.5 million hours (or up to 1,200 terabytes written). Translation: this thing is going to last you forever.
This is an excellent drive with plenty of storage capacity and solid performance at a very good price.
