Vertex 2 SUPER SLOW write speeds

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hi, i recently got a Vertex 2 120gb, and it seems to be one of the older, 34nm drives, as it does come up as 111gb formatted in windows and the OCZ toolbox lists the density as 32gb. Unfortunately, i am getting extremely slow write speeds in AS SSD, and Atto as well. In AS SSD, my sequential write speeds hover around 60mbs, 4k around 11, and 4k-64Thrd around 35. I find that to be enormously slow compared to what i've seen in reviews. Should I send it back for an RMA?

Thanks for your help

I am using AHCI, but have not tried a different SATA port. Right now im using the onboard ICH10R controller, i will try both another port on that and one on the sata 6 controller just in case and get back to you. Thanks.

And maybe throw out of an 18 wheeler truck.
then, 2 minutes later ill be yellin Frick (f-word)

Yup your read speeds are slopin down
just like sony's psn how it gives all a frown when its down.
But dont give a frown
just rma it

It is a setting in your bios regarding the configuration of your SATA ports. You should get better performance with your vertex if it is enabled, so do so in your bios. Keep in mind though, that if you didnt install windows with AHCI enabled, it probably will not boot, so you will need to change some registry keys in regedit first (i dont remember which ones, google AHCI regedit)

Nope those speeds are about right.

If you email their RMA service they will tell you to use a specific benchmark.

On that particular benchmark (the one you linked), that's about what I got with the OCZ Vertex 2 120GB (first generation, not the newer cheaper nm reduced gen). Mine broke after less than 3 months of use, so I RMA'd and resold the new packaged one I got back at a bit of a loss.
