- SATA III
This SSD is insanely fast 05/12/2011
- The advertised read speeds are real
- BIOS picked it up immediately, AHCI config was a breeze
- None, not even the write speed
First of all, let me say I'm used to SSD. I work with a T5500 Dell packing 2 Intel 6-cores processors and 2 SSD's. I use it for simulations where fast data acess/write is crucial and often the bottleneck. Needless to say, SSD make a huge difference and we are always looking for the fastest SSD possible.
So when I saw this crucial going for $99 I just had to give it a shot and it delivers. I got 1 for my personal computer, getting read speeds around 347mb/s and my "eye" bench test tells me this would go well against most if not all the SSD I ever used. Sure, writing stuff is slower but for a personal pc I just don't see that much difference. At work I'm sure we would drop this, but at home where opening browser, apps, games etc is the norm this thing is just as fast as anything I ever saw at 5x the price.
For $99 this was a steal.
