Having first tested with AS SSD, I was a bit disappointed to say the least when I compared my results to what some of you had posted here. Then I went to the OCZ forums, and they stated that not all benchmarks are the same, and that they use different algorithms. They mentioned something about compressible and incompressible data and how some drives work better with one type than the other. Having read that, I checked my SSD packaging and,whereas AS SSD was mentioned, it wasn't in the prominent (top) position. That honour befell to ATTO. I then decided to see what I got with that.
This ties in very nicely with the given specs, so I am relieved that the drives are performing as they should.
