Windows 7: Show us your SSD performance 2

Yes, it's like racing, your speed depends on how much money you throw at the machine.

Are these numbers good/bad? I don't know what they should be. My drive is the Kingston HyperX 3K 240gb.

Great numbers. Since AS SSD uses incompressible data, you get much lower write speed. You can try ATTO disk benchmark which uses compressible data so it maximizes your SSD's controller throughput.

Some SSD controllers use data compression, mainly Sandforce controllers, this speeds up most of the standard usage scenarios. Un-compressible data like videos, music, and a few others, will slow down in comparison to non compression controllers.
AS SSD and ATTO don't have any affect on controllers, they just report the speed from running a set program.
On Sandforce controller SSDs you will get faster write speed when benchmarking with compressible data, ATTO, then you will get with AS SSD, which uses un-compressable data.

Use ATTO on a Sandforce SSD, it will give you a better representation of normal daily use, unless you are going to be using a lot of un-compressible data.

The sequential speeds are not that important to the average user, these are promoted by the brand companies to show big numbers. This will only help when installing an OS or if you copy/move very large files multiple times a day on the SSD. Since most people store large files on HDD storage it doesn't help much.
If you want to see if your SSD is running as it should be, you need to compare with the same SSDs tested running the same benchmark.

The most important benchmarks are 4k transfer speeds and the acquisition time. These are what is used most by an OS on a daily basis.

In support of this I recently put a Samsung 840 Pro into an older Intel Q8300 PC with Sata 2. The Samsung cost $140 and with a 5 year warranty it may end up somewhere else eventually. Even though the sequential speeds were limited by the Sata 2 512k, and in particular 4k/access times were great. It's like a new PC!

Here's my latest upgrade.
It's a Corsair Force Series 180GB. Got it for around 60% of what a 120GB 840 Pro goes for.
I know what most of you think about SandForce SSD's, but for games and some apps, it is a no brainer, at least till the 840 Pro pricing becomes a lot more competitive.
