ORICO SV100 Portable Solid State Drive Review

Setup & Testing

Getting the ORICO SV100 setup and running is extremely easy, just plug it into an open USB Type-A or Type-C port on your computer. Once plugged in Windows will automatically detect it and you’ll be good to go. The drive is formatted as NTFS by default and the 512GB version has 476GB of usable space.

For testing we will be running the SV100 against other USB 3.2 gen 2 drives as well as some older USB 3.1 gen 1 drives so you can see the difference between the drives. As a reminder ORICO lists the speeds of this drive at 940 MB/s. First up we have CrystalDiskMark.

As you can see we have sequential speeds of 1011.88 MB/s read and 948.69 MB/s write. Here is how the SV100 compares to other drives in that test.

Next we run the the AJA System test. It tests different types of video formats and gives you throughput results for the drive. Our configuration was 4K RED HD footage, 1 GB test file size, and the 8bit YUV codec.

And those results compared to other drives.

Next up is the USB Flash Benchmark, which will transfer various different file sizes to the drive and record the transfer speeds.

We have also added the AS SSD Benchmark and ATTO Disk Benchmark to our portable storage testing.
