Michael, I don't think that is something to really worry about. It is just a bit odd that the 4K reads are a bit low. I just checked on some of my Vertex2. There it is even lower (in the 70's) and they perform perfectly well.

Derek, I think you need not worry. This SSD will still perform very well. The 4K nums just stood out as being a bit odd.

Hey you guru's on SSD's would you mind taking a look at my thread below and give me some hints as to why my SSD is so slow. It's brand new with a clean install.

I plan on buying a SSD to replace my current OS drive, as I'm limited of HDD space and the timing is not good, due to something I'm working on and not much time left to finish to back up, install new hdd and restore hdd on new hdd. \

I've done a few readings on SSD drives, how are SATA III (6Gb/s), good for speed ? I'm hoping I see a increase over my SATA platter drive.

If you are talking Sata3 SSDs, they are currently the fastest. But you need a Sata3 port on your board. On a Sata2 port you cannot make full use of their capability. You might as well get a Sata2 SSD and save money in that case.

If you mean the new Sata3 HDDs - they are a gimmik. I would not spend money for one of those.

Is there an easy way to tell what SATA ports I have without opening ? I plan on buying today, as I have a 60 gig in way.

You should find it in the specs of your mobo. That should be available on the website of the PC manufacturer.
