Hi
I have recently installed a supertalent 32G SSD drive FEM32GFDL in a dell mini 9 with winxp. I am very new at this, But the speed of my computer is very, very slow now. I am wondering if it could be the SSD is not right? If it is i can possibly return it. I ran a test with HDTunePro and got the following:



Test capacity: full

Read transfer rate
Transfer Rate Minimum : 0.2 MB/s
Transfer Rate Maximum : 57.2 MB/s
Transfer Rate Average : 28.7 MB/s
Access Time : 6.02 ms
Burst Rate : 14.2 MB/s
CPU Usage : 4.6%

I have no clue. Can anyone tell me if this is working properly by this?
Thanks!

That SSD is a pile of crap. The max according to the specs are 80, even at 80 you would be slower then todays average 7200 rpm drive.

Yours is probably slow due to the fact of it being close to full, when a SSd is almost full they slow down.

Hi.
Thanks for your response. Do you think the drive is defective so that I should try to get my money bacK?

You said: "Yours is probably slow due to the fact of it being close to full, when a SSd is almost full they slow down."
If you are meaning the drive being full...my drive is less than 1/4 full. If you mean the test results saying "test capacity full" possibly that is in reference to a "full" test?
The most important thing I need to know now is if this ssd seems defective?
Thanks so much!

The performance looks about right for that drive... IMO
