Hi. Do you know if it is possible to run this test on anything other than C:? I have a RAID0 3x15K SAS drives monted as E:, and would like to test that?

I tried running the test form a CMD window opened in E:, but it still test the C: drive.

Thanks.

12 secs to boot (exc POST), 5 to shutdown

Interesting how different the values are among SSD's. IMO, the Kingston is the best value for a boot/OS/app drive. Don't be swayed by the high-spec expensive ssd's, you wont notice the difference in real usage.

I am using 11GB for Win7 64, Office, and a few lite apps no heavy games, restore, hibernate and pagefile OFF

I don't know if it affects the test, but I was also already writing something to this disk at the time. I will test when it's finished and see if the score is different, too.
