2 out of 5 eggsNot up to advertised performance

This review is from: PNY Optima SSD7SC480GOPT-RB 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: - It is a SSD after all. Will out perform any mechanical.
- I got it for very cheap. $145 after $20 rebate.

Cons: Crystaldiskmark result show far below advertised performance. I guess "up to" 60,000 IOPS means you have to be lucky? Anyway, following is the results that i had.

Seq Read/Write: 511.8/343.8 MB/s
512K Read/Write: 452.4/342.9 MB/s
4K Read/Write: 26.96/19.33 MB/s
4K QD32 Read/Write: 222.8/97.38 MB/s

97.38 MB/s on 4K QD32 indicate about 24000 IOPS

Other Thoughts: Testing environment
i5 2500K - Biostar z68a+ MB
16 GB ram 1333

5 out of 5 eggsSimilar to XLR8 Performance

This review is from: PNY Optima SSD7SC480GOPT-RB 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Lowest price for 480GB capacity.

Good performance for the price compared to others costing up to $50 more.

Cons: none at the price

Other Thoughts: The biggest weakness of affordable SSDs seems to be that they slow down when they get about half full or more. You can significantly improve that by setting aside some extra space on the SSD , known as "over-provisioning".

If you have plenty of unused space on your SSD you may allot some of it for extra over-provisioning.

In Windows, use DiskManagement (Control Panel / Administative Tools / Disk Management) to reduce the size of the main partition (usually named C: Windows) by anything from 20GB up to 100GB. For example, in a 480GB drive reduce the C: partition down as low as 380GB. Then create a new partition for all the unused space and format it. After formatting, delete the partition you just created (yes, Delete it!). Now you have that unused space which is blank/empty and your SSD will use it to maintain performance of the larger main partition (C: Windows).

This trick is not necessary. Without it, your SSD should run just fine for years. But, if you want to maintain random Read/Write performance as high as possible, then giving it extra empty space to work with when the drive begins to fill up will definitely help to wring every ounce of speed from the drive.
