We saw what an excellent drive the Comay Venus Pro 3 240GB was and now we are going to take a look at the 120GB Venus Pro 3. This drive is the same as the 240GB version except for it’s a smaller capacity. There is usually a pretty big performance gap between a 120GB and a 240GB SandForce Driven drive with the 240GB drives having the superior performance in most areas except for strangely enough Vantage Fill Testing where the roles are reversed and the 120GB drives tend to have higher performance. Like its larger sibling the build quality of the Comay Venus Pro 3 120GB drive is the finest I have seen to date. The drive comes with overvoltage and power loss protection that is normally found on only very expensive enterprise drives.
Comay burn-in tests every drive to assure quality and reliability so you won’t be getting a drive that will bomb out on you. The drive I received had been tested with 866GB of data that was erased. This attests to Comay’s desire to provide the consumer with a bullet proof drive. Comay is well aware of the problems that 6Gb/s LSI SandForce controlled drives have occasionally been plagued by and, have taken extreme measures to ensure that the Venus Pro 3 will not experience these problems. Their back-up power design will prevent the drive from losing its firmware which has caused many a 2281 drive to become “Bricked”. The Venus Pro has also been tested to be problem free from sleep-wake up cycles to 10,000 repetitions.
