Windows 7: SSD boot time

25 Aug 2011   #11

Windows 10 Pro/ Windows 10 Pro Insider

Sorry, I am not familiar with the Kingston SSD . But for an OS drive, the 4kb read speed and access times are the most important.

Question is whether you have a 6Gb Sata port - because if you only have 3Gb Sata ports, this Kingston SSD is an overkill.

You can measure the 4K transfer speed - maybe you find data on the web. Here is the example of the slower SSD that shows you the difference between maximum speed with large blocks (that is what they specify in the ads) and 4K speed.

I agree with WHS about the 6 gb/s sata port. No reason to spend extra for something you can't benefit from. Saying that, the Kingston has a sandforce controller which have proven to be very good. The only question should be reliability. You can learn some about that by reading user reviews on sellers web sites. In my opinion, the worst performing SSD is better than the best mechanical hard drive providing it meets the reliability question. I have crucial, Intel and OCZ ssds. They are all very good and I would be happy with any of them, and am.
