Goodram Iridium Pro 960GB review: Polish SSD

Fast ssd with one major drawback

By


Conclusion

The Goodram Iridium Pro 960GB is a fast sata-ssd, which mainly achieves some impressive results in the synthetic tests. Because it is stuck in the middle of the pack in the PCMark practice tests and the heavier continuous activity tests, it does not perform as well as the Samsung 850 Evo. In any case, for a fairly unknown manufacturer this is a solid start.

The main issue that we have with the Iridium Pro 960GB is the price. While you can purchase the 1TB versions of the Crucial MX300 or Samsung 850 Evo for 267 pounds / 300 euros and 302 pounds / 340 euros respectively, the Goodram SSD has an average price of more than 356 pounds / 400 euros. Especially because of the fact that a 960 Evo does not cost an awful lot more than that, the price will have to go down quite a bit before we can recommend this ssd without reservation.
