Windows 7: Show us your SSD performance 2

I have to say that I don't put a lot of faith in the aggregate WEI. I did run the "winsat disk" on the 0309 firmware but unfortunately didn't save the results.

I am led to believe that access time is a key metric for SSDs and hope AS-SSD hasn't got this one wrong.

I ran that benchmark and I got about the same Acc results as you. Honestly, I would just enjoy the ssd Keep the firmware up to date, so you will experience optimum stability and most of the time, performance. Who knows, this version of AS-SSD benchmark may not work as well with the firmware. Enjoy your ssd

But the difference between 0.2ms and 0.365 is not going to be very noticeable from a usage experience. A mechanical hard drive is going to run 12-15ms.

I know that benchmarks are used to spot problems and prove performance, but you may just be focusing too much on these numbers. Unless it was something like 5-10ms, I wouldn't lift a finger to figure out why. Let me test my results and I will post results.

Edit, here is what I get from my Intel 320 series in my laptop

I'm a bit of a perfectionist which has its drawbacks. You're probably right that I wouldn't actually perceive a performance impact. Thanks for your inputs.

^ We are all enthusiasts, so I can understand your concerns. When I first joined this forum, I was trying to figure out why a Seagate 7200.12 1TB hard drive was registering 25ms access times on my rig. Never could figure it out. I changed the OS, cables, drivers, etc.....and the problem persisted. I put that 7200.12 into my Linux box and it runs perfect at 12ms. I got a Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB for my new machine and it runs at 12ms like it should.

But I will be honest, aside from the benchmark, I could never prove with a stopwatch that anything changed when I went from the Seagate 7200.12 to the Western Digital Caviar Black. I spent $100 simply to lower my benchmark number in the end. Of course, it did give my Linux machine a new 1TB hard drive...so all was not lost.

This was using the free HD Tune. I just added this SSD, and I love it.

It doesn't necessarily mean ASSSD was wrong. You could run it a dozen times and get a dozen slightly different results. I wouldn't trust HDTune for SSD results. It's meant for HDDs

I'm skipping 000F (unless I experience problems)

My comment "Benchmarks don't you love them" may have been a bit obscure.
I don't think HD Tune is that good for SSDs, also under options you need to specify block size which will influence results.
I am questioning whether some benchmarks represent a controlled test. There may be many system factors influencing the result. My HD Tune result was better than the previous poster yet they were very happy with their performance improvement.

I would agree not to upgrade to firmware 000F unless you really need to. My decision to try it was based on a AS-SSD 4k-64 benchmark result!!!
