Poor Vertex 2 benchmark

Last response: in Storage

So this is a benchmark of my Vertex 2 120gb 25nm (I think this is 25nm).

Im really dissapointed of the seq write speed.

What do you guys think of these results?

Should I request an RMA from OCZ?
Would I recieve a disk back with better performance?

the AS SSD benchmark shows false reading do to the Sandforce controller. I can't see what you ATTO benchs say, and I can't zoom in.

See my thread about the same topic here.

Stay away from too many benchmarks tests, they only corrupt the drive.

Yeah I know, but as a normal user, is all the data uncomressed?

If this bench, tests for data types that is normal in use, its more relevant imo!

Other SSDs perform better in this test, also the 32nm version is better.

The question is: Should I return it for another vertex 2, will I get the 32nm version if I turn it in with RMA?

I would not be too worried, as foscooter stated, AS SSD Benchmark is not the best of benchmarks :D  Your ATTO testing matches the testing I've conducted on my OCZ Vertex 2 240GB drive. I truthfully won't worry too much and enjoy your SSD.

Avoid running to many benchmarks and I would take the time to read through this thread from the OCZ forum:

yeah.. and why the hell did you put that AS SSD benchmark where you did? Talk about a tease! LOL

Here's the deal. You have a 64GBit drive there as denoted by the 107GB size and should be 111GB when corrected. Go here to set up an RMA to get a 32GBit as a swap. That drive is at a "settled sate throttle" now and the new one will be a bit faster and in an unthrottled fresh state. Regardless of the lower numbers when using incompressible data on a controller that utilizes compression?.. they are still on top of the performance charts for a reason. Typical OS data will be much more like the ATTO numbers and vids would be closer to the AS numbers.

Penny actually annoys the bejesus out me and is one of the main reasons I dislike that show.

However that is an amazing picture of Kaley Cuoco!
