Windows 7: Show us your SSD performance

I've been thinking about RAID as well but with all my data on 1TB spinner, the 128GB I have on my SSD is probably gonna last me a very, very long time (I'm only using 31%)

On my 32bit Win7 I have divided my 80GB Intel about half and half. For the system I have about 18GBs of used space and for Data about 15GBs. But my pictures and videos I keep on a 32GB USB stick. That works well for me.
On the 64bit system I use the HDD for data. But there I have only a 60GB OCZ.

I had my Patriot Torqx go down on me and Patriot sent me the new Inferno to replace it. I don't have access to my screenshot to the HDTune now so here's my video on the drive and benchmark.

Did you say real world test? I believe that PCmark Vantage is the best real world test out there. If you care so much about real world tests instead of synthetic bench marks then there are some other choices that might interest you. But I have a feeling that despite this test you would still stick with the Crucial.

FutureMark has developed a good set of hard disk tests for their PCMark Vantage Suite. Windows users can count on Vantage to show them how a drive will perform in normal day to day usage scenarios.

For most users these are the tests that matter since many of the old hat ways to measure performance have become ineffective to measure true Windows performance.

I'm pretty much over benchmarks now. What matters to me is how the drive performs on my machine and I think it's gonna be a long while before I need to upgrade my SSD because everything I need is practically instant with my drive. I don't know how much quicker a drive could get and I don't mean measured by benchmark software.

Good point. Who needs tests if one is happy.

This is very true and the main reason it is true is that the performance boost from rotating to SSD comes almost entirely from the access time which is hundreds or thousands of times faster and it relativelty the same on all SSDs. The pure read/write speeds rarely come into full play during normal use (Meaning that the full read/write speed is virtually never attained in normal use anyway) but the access time is paramount at ALL times that the drive is accessed for reading or writing.

Been a lot of debate regarding the Crucial C300 and Marvell 91xx driver vs msahci so I thought I'd put it to the test. I uninstalled the Marvell driver, rebooted and Windows loaded the msahci files and got me to reboot again. I then ran AS SSD. When it was finished I reinstalled the Marvell driver (the most up to date version: 1001042) and re-ran AS SSD.

Here are the results:

The drive's performance has degraded but it's only noticeable in benchmarks. It "feels" just as fast as it always has.

Compare those to this:
