Sequential Read/Write Speed

To measure sequential performance I ran a 3 minute long 128KB sequential test over the entire span of the drive at a queue depth of 1. The results reported are in average MB/s over the entire test length.

    I'm just happy that this far along, my Agility 2 is still holding up well. Thanks for all of the great reviews!

    Could you please run the Anandtech Storage Bench 2011 with 1 standard hard drive, even if it takes forever to run? I always like to see a reference as many of us don't have SSD yet.

    Seconded! Just run using like a Caviar Black drive so we can see how much better SSD is versus a top-of-the-line mechanical drive.

    Would be appreciated!

    Would be nice for technicalities, but you can see the comparison on the 2010 version with WD's Velociraptor.

    I would like to know how the 60GB version performs. Especially if they are cutting the number of chips in half vs the 256GB version.

    According to the press release on OCZ's website the Vertex 3 will be available in 120GB and 240GB capacities. The Vertex 3 Pro wil be available in 100GB, 200GB, & 400GB capacities.

    Hopefully they will eventually release 60GB version. I would love to have two in RAID 0.

    Hi, has the much talked about hibernation problem with the Sandforce drives been solved in the 2xxx series?
    Loosing Hibernation is pretty much a deal killer for me in a laptop :(

    Will these faster drives speed up virus scans?

    Currently, when a virus scan is running, my laptop performance is crippled.
