Windows 7: Show us your SSD performance

For starters download the new version here. This one probably in German > Alex Intelligent Software - Downloads

This one is the English version I'm fairly sure.
Or here> AS SSD Benchmark 1.6 from - Download - Techworld.com

The old version did not work well with my Intel 320 either.
I think they updated it to the 1.6 to work better with newer 2011 SSD's.

Yeah, those nums are not great. But it could also be the AS program. Run Atto for comparison. http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/1137/ATTO_Disk_Benchmark_v2.34.html

Also shut down close all browsers, mail (Outlook) etc. while doing the benchmarks. You want the "OS" idling for best results.
I know lots of things still run in the back ground just not all the extras "we" start.

Also if Windows is indexing the scores may show low. Indexing may continue to run or take too long to stop before the benchmark starts.

The newer version I posted above should get better results. At least more accurate.

Edit
Close the browsers etc. as you would normally. I didn't mean to shut down any process in Task Manager.

I'm not sure what is going on with the Kingston.
Maybe some others will post some ideas.

If you run too many tests on an SSD, they will tend to slow down. Wait a day or so before running another. Depending on the controller, some tests will show better results than others. Like WHS said, I would try ATTO next time and compare the results. Your drive has a Samsung controller so idleing on the login page may not work to help it. You are getting close to the advertised read speeds but about half of the write speeds. The access times is what is hurting you most on the Kingston. also the 4KB read speeds are very slow.

That explains that.
Not a bad idea to leave the recovery partiton.

I never thought of that.

I'm sure you made the recovery CD/DVD's already but it never hurts to have the partition.

You can go either way. I just cloned mine when I installed on my SSD.
If it ever gets totally messed up I'll go with a clean install then....or when I have the extra time and patience.
