Performs as advertised
Pros: ATTO Disk Benchmark with default settings The Corsair is on SATA 6, 1/3 full (W7 +etc) Numbers in parenthesis were scored by a popular 1Tb HD, SATA 3, 1/10 full System i3-560 4GHz, Asus P7H57D-V These numbers are Sequential (Transfer Rate) at the given file sizes. The SSD's advantage in Random Access should be many times greater than this. All results in Mb/sec Read: up to 349 Write: up to 114 .5Kb Read: 39 (2) (in parenthesis 1Tb harddrive) Write: 15 (8) 4Kb Read: 180 (63) Write: 84 (59) 8192Kb Read: 346 (108) Write: 113 (100) SATA 3 Vs. SATA 6 Writes were about the same. Reads: filesize, SATA 3/SATA 6 .5Kb, 19/39 4Kb, 116/180 8192Kb, 280/346
Overall Review: Seeing its numbers I bought it for mostly-read usage and for silence, and it's performing perfectly so far. P.S. Newegg is the greatest.
