Windows 7: Show us your SSD performance 2

That's ONE example of something wrong. I had 2 Intel 520 SSD's in a row go bad while others were just fine. No manufacturer has a flawless record.

OK, these are just after updating success on my AMD SATA Controller driver update from the standard one, and full reboots afterwards: [fresh 7 Ultimate install in general]

Both 128 GIG SSD versions: [paid about the same for each sadly, maybe a year apart at most.]

Samsung drive clearly makes the Adata look rather sad, but way I am using, it's more than adequate.

My lags HD wise are the other SATA drives coming out of parking slumber, but minor annoyance that is kind of expected and needed or they wouldn't last nearly as long.

Every utility I run is on either of the 2 SSD's no exceptions.

I had heard the Intel 520s were trouble, fortunately researched before buying, more heavily this time, so I got the 2nd best this time performance wise in the Samsung, very close any way so not much of a sacrifice.

At Newegg, it is often on sale. That's how I got my 128GB Vector for $120.
