Anyone have a Intel X25-V 40GB?
I've only found benchies for the 80GB version, and they look really good.

Im curious what kind of numbers these 40GB ones are getting as I might want to pick one up.

Most here (as far as I know) use the M series drives. Have a look here for good info on the V series: Intel X25-V 40GB Review by Aeogenia - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net

Can someone just explain it to me VERY SLOWLY as to why reinstalling windows on the SSD and allowing it to reformat the drive to the proper size and then restoring it from the restore image will not work. Quite frankly I don't have the confidence that I can accomplish the currently outlined method and might just live with what I have rather than screw it up completely. Thanks again for your patience and help.

Because

Window's 7 backup and other backup programs image the whole drive, including the free unformated space before any partition. By alignment, it means that you are creating your first partition after the 63rd sector or the 1023rd sector or any other setup that makes it aligned. The point is there has to be a predetermined amount of free space before the fire partition to ensure that it is aligned.

If you were to simply reinstall windows, it will not delete any existing partition but will just install itself on the already misaligned partition. Misaligned means it's not starting at the proper sector.

If you were to delete all the partitions, then reinstall Windows, it will create a partition for you, which will be aligned and it's fine until there. But when you restore the image, it will restore the whole drive back to how it was before. It doesn't matter what partitions you've already aligned on the drive.

Alignment refers to the position of a partition, not some physical property of the drive. So when you restore restore the image, you're restoring one or more of the misaligned partitions back to the drive.

Now you could back an image of just the misaligned partition and attempt to restore it onto an aligned partition. The success of this depends on how the backup program works. If it simply write the data bit to bit in order on the new partition, then it stays aligned. But if it deletes the partition and creates a new partition to write the image on, it depends if the software creates the new partition aligned or not
Thank you very much for that explanation, I think that I understand, I'm not sure what I am going to do at this point but all the info is greatly appreciated.

Where did you d/l the benchmark? Did you get it here? I got my copy by clicking the word "download" right at the top of the page. Installed it, ran it, and it worked fine, giving results in English.

Just a heads up that the .zip version of crystal disk info pops up in Japanese for me too. Easy fix is to go into Language/A-N/English (it's the last option on the right of the menu bar and should still be labeled in English). You should only have to do it once when you unzip it or better option is to just grab the installer version (.exe).

I went ahead and picked up a Intel X25 V Series SSD.
Hopefully I'll have some more benchmarks for those who are interested in how these perform.

Just curious. For those with Intel SSDs, what kind of useable space do you have VS advertised size?

My Vertex for example says its a 30Gb and has 30GB (29.8) available to use.

But from what Ive been reading, Intel rates them differently, similar to how regualr HDs show size VS whats actually available.

Just curious if the 40GB will actually be 40GB or more like 35-37 available.
