Will be interesting even though they have a lot of catching up to do.
I saw that yesterday. I think it is great, I wish they would include an M4 too. They seem to be trying to test the Sandforce controller but Vertex firmware won't allow them to

They got a M4, post #597.

With the C300 and M4, another 34 vs 25 nand contest, this should be good to watch develop.

Some of you may find this intresting. We have always said the the Paragon alignment tool was the only way to align an SSD without data loss. On the Crucial forums, they say it can be done with the free gparted live CD.

EDIT: for some reason that link dosen't work for me. Here is the link:

Re-alignment without data loss. - Crucial Community
Yeah, I had seen several tutorials on how to do that. But you have to jump thru an awful lot of hops and there is space for error at every step. I would rather use the Paragon tool - a lot easier.

Bottom right corner. Yours is showing 128.0 GB at the moment. It is only 2 days old. When it gets to 999MB it will show 1.0 GB next.

I sure would hate to read through the whole 190 pages of this thread so could someone provide a short update on what everyone is comparing and why? Thanks, Ken

Here's my C300-128

Basically they have a script that writes Different types of data to several models of SSDs. A lot of Data. They are basically trying to kill the SSDs by writes to them. The results so far are quite surprising. They started with a 40GB Kingston (Intel rebrand-34nm), a 40GB Intel 320 (22NM) and a vertex2. They have recently added a Samsung, C300 and an M4. The Vertex2 had to be pulled because of the firmware will only allow a certain amount of writes per day then it basically stops. Idle time revives it, but they couldn't continue. The last I saw it they had written 135TB to the 320 with a MWI of 30. I don't recall the Kingston but it wasn't far behind. The Crucials and the Samsung have just started. The Samsung is writing at 140MB/s probably faster than the others combined. That's the short version. Hopalong can give better details.

EDIT: If you keep up with it, you will laugh every time someone asks if he should put his pagefile on a mechanical hard drive.

Overall this thread was to compare SSD performace on our persoanl SSD's with different software.
AS SSD and ATTO or the common ones used.

My posting about the xtreme forums is just an update to what Essenbe posted about.
For those interested.

My last posting was for Essenbe and anyone else interested.
My comparison of of the Samsung 470 to my Intel 320 120GB.
I have SATA 3.0Gbs and SATA 6.0Gbs ports so I thought I would see if performance might be better on the SATA 6.0Gbs.
It wasn't.
The Samsung was included from someone elses testing as a comparison.
A curiosity by Essenbe and myself on the read and write compared to my Intel.
A bit big to post in a Private Message so there it is.
