Magron, if that comment was directed at me, I will tell you right now that there is nothing on the market that will compete price/performance, against Sandy Bridge. I know because I investigated tirelessly before building this rig. No matter what I looked at, it couldn't match up. This 2500K was $219 and it will OC to 5+. For the price, you can't find anything that will come close. I'm very sure that within 6 months that won't be the case, but I'm happy, I have a computer that will go faster than I want or need to go. A faster one at any price is of no benefit to me.

For an SSD?


I've done many,many upgrades over the years. Motherboards, CPUs, GPUs, Ram etc ...

I can honestly say the SSD was the only upgrade that made such an immediate difference I was amazed. Far more than any other component upgrade.
Installing Windows was faster, but even after 1st boot I could tell.

Id say they are certainly worth the investment. At least as a OS/App drive.

As a drive for Storage or for lots of games, it may not be worth the investment.
Too expensive for that much space, and it wont make enough of a difference here to justify it IMHO. Not like it does for the OS.
Ditto that. I've yet to see any upgrade, at any price, that compares to the performance gains from simply switching to a good SSD.

It is a truly amazing upgrade, when using a non-SSD computer it seems like they take forever to do anything.

A SSD made my three year old laptop just fly.

New Bench app.

Download> Anvil Storage Utilities Releases New Storage and SSD Benchmark | The SSD Review

Added info and discussion in progress> Anvil's Storage Utilities

Top is Anvils Samsung 470 128GB for comparison to kick things off.
Bottom is my Intel 320 120GB

Anvil used 2GB test write. I used the default 1GB. Shown in middle top as "Test size".
Click "Screenshot" when done and save it where you want.

The testing is based on IOmeter for benching without all the headaches of using the stand alone IOmeter software.
I found IOmeter web site quite confusing just finding what app is the download.

Plus there are extras in Anvils software if you want such as "Endurance Testing".

Hoppy, what am I missing? Look at the response times, that is wrong, isn't it?

Response time evidently includes "load" time of the info to run.
When you run the test it "loads" the info to be run and shows this to you as it is doing so.
The Reads and Writes.

It is using 1GB not a few KBs of info as other Benchmarks use.
So it takes longer to run IOmeter than AS SSD which is done in 10 seconds or less.

It also may give better results overall on a partitioned area. I'm not sure.

I made no partition I just ran it.

I've never run an iometer test that I am aware of. Probably won't either.

Ran it, but will probably be the only time. Don't want all my read/writes to be tests, lol.
