Testing Format

As this is our first review of an SSD please expect our format and testing to evolve and improve over time.  We welcome feedback on that.

As we mentioned previously, we do not have performance comparisons in this initial review.  We are simply going to post screenshots of the results and talk about them.  In the future, as we gather more data, we will have full performance graphs comparing different SSDs so you can see where performance lines up.  We will include the data from this SSD today as well.

For today’s testing, we are going to use several synthetic benchmarks to test read and write performance, sequential and random performance and other useful data.  We will also load up a few games and test game launch times.

The applications we are using are CrystalDiskInfo to provide SSD information.  We are also using CrystalDiskMark to benchmark the drive and show results.  We are using PCMark 10’s Storage Benchmark doing a full storage long run to show the result.  We are also using Aida64’s Read Test Suite.  We are also using ATTO’s default benchmark.  We are using MiniTool Partition Wizard’s benchmark of sequential and random performance.  Then we are using Diskbench to test copying large files on the drive to another location on the drive to test performance and time of file copying.  Then, a few games to test launch times.
