No worries, easy mistake to make with the decimal place.

Just about any good SSD can do 0.1ms. Browse through older pages of this thread to see plenty of examples. But to be honest, not much difference between 0.1 and 0.2ms.

My OCZ Vertex 30GB drives do this. They were $130 each minus a $20 MIR. So with four of them in a RAID 0 of 120GB, that cost me $440. They blow away even Velociraptors for performance when you put them in a RAID 0/5/10 array.

4x WD Scorpio Black 250GB 7200 RPM 2.5" in RAID 10

Not what I'd hoped for but it'll do for now.

For the lack of anything better to do, I came up with this benchmark to see how much several common programs help improve drive speed, if at all.

To start, I did a basic scan before everything to give a base level.



Then I ran CCleaner.



And finally MyDefrag, both the drive optimization and defrag routines.



Apparently what helped my drive best was running CCleaner.

I belive it is time to upgrade the HD has just failed on me (not a big loss) and now it is a paperweight. So now since that happend it is time to get SATA 2.

From IDE to single member Raid. W/ NCQ enabled makes a huge differance in the 4k64 thread.
