SuperTalent FSD28GC25M 128GB 2.5-inch SATA Solid State Drive Review

SuperTalent FSD28GC25M 128GB 2.5-inch SATA Solid State Drive Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: The Supertalent FSD28GC25M is capable of a sequential read speed of at least 60MB/s, a sequential write of 45MB/s and access times of 0.1ms. With no moving parts, the Super Talent 128GB SSD is obviously silent.

The access times for the SuperTalent FSD28GC25M 128GB solid state drive are impressive. As we can see, getting at the data is a very quick job for a solid state drive.

HD Tach V3.0.1.0 Source: TCD Labs Inc.

HD Tach is a physical performance hard drive test for Windows 95/98/ME and Windows NT/2000. In Windows 9X/ME it uses a special kernel mode VXD to get maximum accuracy by bypassing the file system. A similar mechanism is used in Windows NT/2000/XP. HD Tach reads from areas all over the hard drive and reports an average speed. It also logs the read speeds to a text file that you can load into a spreadsheet and graph to visually read the results of the test.

With no spinning platter, the Super Talent SSD can access data in an instant. Low CPU utilization means the processor is free for other tasks. These two values are probably most important since this type of drive can be deployed in unconventional situations, getting data available quickly may be critical and with little to no CPU utilization means the processor can focus on more important tasks.

WinRAR Internal Benchmark Source: RARLabs

This command generates random data, which contain specially introduced redundancy increasing load to processor and memory. Then data are passed through RAR compression and decompression algorithms and output of decompression algorithm is compared with source data. If any difference found, WinRAR reports "Errors found - Yes" in the command window. Also WinRAR displays a size of processed data and compression speed, current and resulting, in kilobytes per second. You may use the resulting speed value to compare RAR performance in different conditions.
