Are you sure you did not benchmark with ATTO? CrystalDiskMark uses highly incompressible data to test Read/Write speeds. The 60GB Agility 3 has a maximum Write speed of 65MB/s using incompressible data (with AS-SSD software). Here's the link to the spec sheet for your drive: http://www.ocztechnology.com/res/manuals/OCZ_Agility3_P... Can't find your answer ? Ask !

I knew there was a huge gap between compressible and incompressible data. I just remember getting those numbers in CrystalDiskMark. In Atto, I believe I used to get about 500 and 450 in read and write, respectively. So perhaps there was a glitch of sorts before, and NOW it's running as it's supposed to.
