Intel X25-M 80GB, used roughly 3 months now.


So you want to buy a Solid State Drive? Check out my pre-purchase guide for a run down on the fundamentals
Already have a Solid State Drive? Read magic-man's Windows 7 optimization guide

Ahh Setup, would be done as a fresh install?

Yes, also you flubbed your entry. Perhaps OP can correct.

You repeated your read access time as your read score in the spreadsheet.

Actually I can edit the entry unless you wanna run again... your post link was also to a post in a different thread, I just fixed that...

Hmm just checked your entry, had to clean up significant errors, if you post more results, please check them...

Apart from the Write score being the read access time, the Read/Write access times were reversed, and offset text color was green (was red in screenshot)... anyway I've cleaned up all those issues

I'm now going back to check all the other entries lol

Regarding the fresh install, yes it would realign the partitions during Windows Setup, but you need to actually delete all the existing partitions on that drive, then just choose the drive and install to it, Windows will automatically generate the required partitions with correct offsets.

SATA cables are SATA cables, no such thing as a "SATA 6Gbit/s cable"

Minor correction to your entry too, those 2 drives you posted were both advertised as 128GB (even tho we both know they are only 120GB)

Also since both drives are the same you would expect better performance from the UltraDrive... unless they use different Flash chips or somesuch...

maybe they need a performance refresh or something...

In your screenshot the FW version is 02HA... perhaps you should update to 02HD and see if your scores change at all...

but if you do, make sure your backup is up to date
