This drive is relatively cheap, so I was not expecting miracles in terms of performance when I benchmarked it. I did, however, expect the performance to remain consistent through testing. The initial test was pretty impressive for how cheap this thing was, but as subsequent testing took place I could actually see the performance drop with each test iteration run.

My initial testing (held consistent for 2-3 tests):


5 tests later:


20 tests later, and consistently since:


Is this typical of a SSD? Is there some kind of "break in" period in terms of cycles of I/O perhaps? The rate of data transfer appears to remain consistent enough, but the access times and IOPS degrade by quite a bit. This is the first SSD I have owned and I admittedly know little beyond the definition of IOPS, let alone its performance impact.

My Samsung SSD 840 EVO doesn't seem to drop after few instances of tests.

When have you bought this SSD? Are the faster chips back?

But such business practices does not explain the quick performance degradation. With something like that I would expect the overall performance to just be sub-par.
