A clear win for the SSD as expected, but not as strong write results as other sites have shown. Perhaps this is because the motherboard used in this review only allows true SATA 6GBps performance after changing IO settings in the BIOS (which of course I did), or the drive could have been tested too many times by other sites perhaps and a secureerase was needed.

Either way, the scores are hardly bad, but they’re a little lacking, especially on the sequentials.

Similar results in AS-SSD as the Crystal scores. Very nice access times though.

    any review that does not clearly state as part of the SSD spec whether a 7 or 9 mm drive is very DEFECTIVE REVIEW.
