Thanks for the welcome. I am loving the SSD, despite the steep price of entry. The benchmark I am using is as whs says.

Also, at the top of the page the word "download" is clickable. The version is switchable between English and German.

Its a nice tool, developed especially for benchmarking SSD's. There is even a handy Screenshot function to generate the picture you see posted.

Here is my Patriot M28 64-G (using the evil forbidden unapproved (at least by patriot)VBM19C1Q firmware) in Win 7 64-bit (optimized mine further for SSD)...

Hmm, how come it jerks around so much. Usually it is pretty much a flat line. And 2ms access time sounds very high - it should be in the nanosec range (which this program cannot show, it usually shows 0.0ms or 0.1ms instead). Maybe your unapproved firmware is not all that good for the bit.

Samsung based SSD has always had the jagged line from HDTune. My guess is that it is the 128M cache... The older firmware did not have trim support in Win 7... This run was done 10 minutes after filling up the drive and deleting the file to test trim support. When I did it with the old version, reads went down to 100 MBS and were a lot 'spikier'. Still fast! (7.2 Win experience... Ya, could be better)
ALTHOUGH.... A few more charges on the CC and I can get an Intel X25 drive with the points.....

PLUS... This is on my laptop with the MS AHCI drivers with 3 VMs running in the background.

Understand. Trim is worth having. I had to mail my OCZ Vertex to OCZ to upgrade it to FW 1.4. My firmware level was so old, I could not flash it myself. But they did it free of charge - even paid the return postage. But on this system I have an 80GB Intel.

I think the 0.2ms is actually accurate..... I have seen quite a few that reported 0.0ms with HDTune that got worse read performance than my hard drive... The fastest theoretical access speed would be limited to just how many clock ticks it takes to execute the command plus drive speed plus overhead, so it could never be 0.0.. Must be the way some MFGRs do the caching.... For me, HDTune numbers are only a reference in the reads and I take the other stats with a grain of salt.

OK... Here is my latest HDTune... The reason my other screenshot was so wierd is that I was running HDTune on my boot disk with everything running.
Here it is when running in safe mode (no virus scanner slowing it down (Darn MS virus scanner!)):
