This is the bench result of only one OCZ vertex 4 on my SATA 2 port. I think it is very good result even though SSD was on SATA 2 port. This is almost same performance as SATA 3 port. I don't know how I achieved this result on SATA 2 port because it is theoretically not possible as SATA 2 has maximum speed in real world read/write 295 mb/s.

I configured SATA as RAID in Bios, not as AHCI which many expert recommend. Maybe that was the answer that I got super performance on my SATA 2 port? What do you think?

How many times are you going to post the same information?

Glad that you like the drive, but this is not a sales forum, if is really to help with issues.

Unfortunately, you don't seem to really understand that benchmarks are not really indicative of real world performance. The fastest and slower SSDs all feel very similar, and are all far more responsive than HDDs.

As you say, it's NOT POSSIBLE.

I'm not sure if you mistakenly have it hooked up to a SATA3 port (SATA600) or whether the benchmark values are incorrect but there is absolutely no way to achieve more than the approximate 300MB/second limitation of SATA2 (aka SATA300).

FYI, I'm not sure how reliable that OCZ drive is, probably pretty good but I still recommend the Samsung 830/840 drives.

+1, right now Samsung would be my first choice.
