Youre not supposed to defrag an SSD, its one of the benefits of running an SSD in the first place.
Also have you ever OWNED a 15k drive by seagate? yes they do produce a bit of heat, not much more than a WD black, and are only noisy upoun start up.....
@OP 2 of my 15k drives = 1 top end SSD. And im running it on a low end controller, if i upgraded my controller i will most likely beat an SSD.
either way, it laughs at my face and kicks the loading bar in the arse to move it along at a quick rate.
From what i understand latency is the time between the command is registered and the time it takes for that data block to be sent off on its way.Edited by Cata1yst - 10/28/10 at 1:07pm
