Samsung 470 SSD 256 GB
Running in Power Saver since I forgot to switch it back, been on battery for awhile!

How does having any other programs runnings in the background affect the outcome of the WSAT? I would imagine it would in my opinion.

We all know that your WEI score is taken from the lowest # for that set, in this example it looks like it has taken the Disk Random 16.0 Read 116.05 MB/s 7.2, my disc score in WEI shows a 7.2, but there is a 7.1 in the Grouped IOs 10.18 units 7.1

So maybe I am wrong in my theory, shocker!

Not sure if it has been stated in the thread since I did not read every one. Can someone please explain what each score tests for, generally what it is? I realize what some of them are of course, but some of them I don't get

It is amazing to see the difference in the scores when it comes to times between the HDD and SSD tests in several of the scores. This is the 1st time I have found such a set of examples comparing all differnet types in one place. Great job on starting this thread awhile back!
