It's not false.

It's just speed advertised when they're new. Once they're filled up, they get slower.

That's not false advertising.

As for the OP, it's an OK drive tbh. However, an SSD is an SSD. You'll notice performance gain whereas an HDD might slow you down a little.

i owed several ocz ssd drives and none ran near there rated speeds.then finally bought a m4 and got the speeds labeled.OCZ's firmware is tuned in such a way to benefit from ATTO's stream of zeroes by compressing it.
ATTO is not meant to benchmark SSDs and OCZ knows this, but they use it anyways so they can inflate their speed claims. there's a reason OCZ drives are both the cheapest and "fastest" SSDs available. i fell for it, you fell for it, everyone who's bought an OCZ SSD for its speed has fallen for it.

They do run at their rated speeds. They are rated with ATTO. Running ATTO will result in rated speeds. Therefore your claim is false.

It is not only OCZ drives which have results like that, it is all sandforce drives when benched with programs that they weren't advertised for.

Current gen SandForce:

  • Corsair Force Series GS

  • Mushkin Chronos Deluxe
  • OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS
  • OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G

  • Sandisk Extreme

The OP asked if he got a good SSD. As far as SSDs go, then his is pretty crappy. It's still better than HDD but based on the low IOPS, it's going to be considerably slower compared to most current crop of SSDs in terms of 4k read/write which is what's important for an OS drive. You're focusing too much on sequential speeds but those matter even less for daily use unless you're in the habit of copying really large files.

If the OP has paid $100 for it, then it's a poor buy. Since he got it for free, heck, why not? It's not worth it to buy another one of those for RAID, though. He'd be much better off upgrading to, say, a Samsung 830 256GB.

use that Sandisk as a Cache drive for your terabyte drives. That'd help a lot

it's a very simple process

What does a good SSD have instead of the 8000 and 3000 iops?
Are they like 10,000 or 15,000 or what? What should I look for?
Happy time PC.
