OWC Mercury Electra 3G MAX 960GB Review: 1TB of NAND in 2.5" Form Factorby Kristian Vättö on October 18, 2012 1:00 AM EST
AnandTech Storage Bench 2011, Light Workload
Our new light workload actually has more write operations than read operations. The split is as follows: 372,630 reads and 459,709 writes. The relatively close read/write ratio does better mimic a typical light workload (although even lighter workloads would be far more read centric). The I/O breakdown is similar to the heavy workload at small IOs, however you'll notice that there are far fewer large IO transfers:

Performance in our Light suite is fairly similar to Heavy suite: The Mercury Electra isn't unbelievably fast but it does okay for a SATA 3Gbps drive.
