    for Sata II they look decent.. what are the peak speeds for that ssd?

    You may get better with a different controller.. are you using the mobo listed in your specs?

    That drive will easily saturate a SATA3 port on sequential reads

    Yes, having a super fast drive like the Samsung 830 is next to pointless on SATA II.

    I would suspect a lot of people with super fast SSD's are running them on SATA II. Even on the new Intel Z77 boards, some idiot at Intel thought it was a good idea to skimp and only provide 2 SATA III ports on the chipset, which is beyond pathetic considering the current AMD A75 chipset for Fusion processors has 6 SATA III ports, and the future A85x chipset has 8 SATA III ports!

    yes what is listed to the left are my specs. I just want to make sure that about right for sataII mobo.

    I seen Avast scan 350mb's a second when doing virus scans. not sure if it good test tho.

    Aida64 disk bench and AS SSD both report around 250mb/sec give or take

    Windows reports 7.2 for the disk my old seagate used to be 5.9

    it looks good, one of the most reliable and fast ssd on market :cheers:
    you dont need full speed seq r/w, if you dont move big files back and forth all day.. what matters for a ssd is 4K r/w speed and it's not much affected by interface.. hell you wont even notice if you switch to sata3 for daily usage it's already hell of a fast drive.. sata2 bandwidth limit is ~285MiB/s btw..

    FWIW i post my result corsair p256 pro on sata2, it gets 7.8 on wei and pcmark7

    4k r/w dont look to steller but every thing else looks good, drive has 520 mb r/320mb for sequential 80,000 iops.

    I dont see huge diffrence bettween this and my seagate barricude, but there is a diffrence. Saddly it dont help loading times on swtor, which currently the only game i playing. still say prices need to come down to warrnet the price for these, that or i just need a sataIII Mobo. but that will be next build maybe a year or 2.

    I just need to throw a good nvidia gpu on this computer and it should run anything for years to come

    I disagree.
    Sata3 will just mean larger sequential speeds - which you hardly ever use.
    All the other speeds will be as-good-as identical.

    Booting, loading programs, etc, that's all non-sequential, and is as-good-as equally fast sata2 or sata3.

    It's enough to ask yourself, how often do I copy around large ISO files or Movie files?
    Unless it's really often, there's no reason to worry about sata3.



    Are you being specific?
    Like you see 20, but expected 30.
    Or are you saying it should be closer to 300/500?




    4K qd0 speeds are always that low (i.e. 10-30 mb/s) on all solid state drives.
    Keep in mind, an hdd in 4k qd0 will be around 10x to 100x slower than that.

    Drives with '500 mb/s' speeds are best-case sequential speeds, which you will basically never see.

    Here's some 4k speed graphs :

    i dont know i was just saying i never really did any tests on the hdd for such things so i dont know what normal is. if those scores are about what i should be getting on sata II system then i guess the drives is working right
