I love to see advancement in SSDs. I have one in my computer and it's insane how much quicker the computer boots and runs.
Is there a point to testing performance under 4kb sizes considering that NTFS only reads 4kb+ without compression or formatting to smaller sizes?
If I ever get an SSD, it would definitely be a Samsung. I've heard so many good things from them, I use all their portable devices (Note 10.1 and S4), and I've never had a problem. If it were to be an SSD that was my next Samsung purchase, it would be a 60GB and mostly used for my OS.
I personally have an intel 240gb ssd in my rig. It significantly boosts the bootup speed and all around speed of the computer.
Why install the tested SSD's separated from the OS for the tests? Wouldn't it be closer to real life performance if it was being used the way people are going to use it?
