Sigh.. Sandforce drive dipping very lowly.. - Page 3

HDDErase ("Secure Erase") only works in IDE mode, and it even requires that mode to be disabled called "Native Mode". Otherwise, it will never work.
I've found that the SecureErase program on the PartedMagic boot disk will work in AHCI mode.

I know that the Intel G1 models require SecureErase 3.3 in IDE mode but the Gen2 and Vertex2 models worked with Parted Magic's Secure Erase in AHCI mode.

Just an FYI that may save you a little trouble.

I almost wish I could trade for a vertex !
But compare your ATTO Disk Benchmark results with the Phoenix Pro to the Vertex. Your Vertex will probably only get roughly 140/235 MB/sec Write/Read (respectively) while your Phoenix Pro is getting about 270/280 MB/sec Write/Read.

Also, I know that the HD Tune results look ugly, but your Phoenix Pro results are better overall than the Vertex results. However, I personally trust ATTO's results far more because it shows whether or not the drive is working as advertised, and yours most certainly is.

Besides, how does the performance feel in comparison to the Vertex?

It will indeed only be a little bit of trouble saved because I found HDDErase (which I prefer to call Secure Erase) to be extremely easy to use.
