PC Vantage benchmark comes close to real world. and even the "Budget" SSD prety much trounces the Velcoraptorhttp://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/windows-ssd-performance,2518-7.html
From Conclusion. Quote
Given these findings, I can’t imagine ever again having a hard disk-based boot drive. With prices now affordable and even the lowest-performing drives trouncing HDDs in the functions many people value so highly
The 2 important factors: Acess time SSD = 0.1->0.2 mSec, Velico - 7.2 mSec (SSD 72 times faster)
4 K random read/writes SSD much faster.
AW, the Velico wins in sequential writes (Only catagory) - But this was an OLD review, The New generation of SSDs using the SF controller even takes this win away.
