    Wow, they look really good!
    A bit let down on write speed, but as you said, at that speed it matters little for most uses, and read speeds are top notch.

    I'm sorry if I missed an explanation, but why exactly does the 120GB struggle with write speeds?

    ^ it reaches "only" 340MB/s while others do 500+

    Because 1/2 the output elements gives half the bandwidth.
    There is almost no difference between 240GB and 480GB because the bus is already saturated at 240GB.

    Aha, I figured that was what it was, but wasn't sure. I don't remember seeing other 120's do so heavily so that's why I asked.

    I just checked my SSD and found indexing was enabled. Thanks for the heads-up!
    Should compression be enabled? It isn't on mine.
    Is it safe to use Disk Cleanup?
    I've used several different brands of SSD's, including SanDisk, and have never actually sensed any difference in their operating speeds.
    It kind of makes me wonder why anyone except reviewers benchmark their drives.
    Unless, of course, you think something is wrong with one.
    Even then I'd be more interested in copying the info to another drive before I wasted any time benchmarking it.
    Right?

    Hi!

    last Friday I install my first SSD on my PC and activate de ACHI mode was a nightmare.

    After 3 hours of installation (Win7-Win8), many BSOD because AHCI... I found the correct regedit code to activate AHCI on Win8:

    "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\storahci\"

    Hope help somebody!.

    Nice review, Hilbert. Good to see some solid competition.
