sigh, this sorta makes me sad
also i just realized that my ssd cant use TRIM because XP doesnt support that apparently.
so maybe these numbers are XP's fault or its both XP and the used drive itself thats giving low #s.
is there any other possible reason? i got a sata 2 mobo and XP Pro is currently running.
hddtune reports all green in terms of the numerical smart stats...
i outta look at the actually specs of the drive and see how much damaged it is, perhaps i should reconsider an exchange? or would people agree that the drive is at least in decent enough condition..??
plus what is the BAD 31K in the corner there??
i will say windows xp boots in 10 secs flat!
and then i am in complete control and theres no lag during login. quite amazing even if shes a bit damaged.
um also, i still dont have a clear understanding of the 4k, sequential etc etc? which ones mean which and which ones should i be focused on or worried about? im really using it as a gaming rig and boot times and game level load times app laod times, these were all factors i considered for upgrading to ssd tech.
also should i upgrade firmware?
i know lots of questions in one post!
i realized this f60 wasnt high end either but i figured they are one of the few that Supossedly maintain common speeds even on
the lower capacity models, whereas other higher end ssds tend to suck ass for speeds when u go to the 40-80 gig range. the controllers are often 44% slower if u dont get a 120gb as the minimum entry...
