Just thought I'd chime in here. I installed a 32GB Patriot Warp 2 as my PC's OS drive and that slowed SOME things down drastically. Apparently there is a bug in the SATA controller that slows down random access.

If I do a read/write test on the drive, I get 150MB/s.

Doing things like application installs/uninstalls takes a lot longer, opening photoshop is slower. In fact, aside from sustained (large file copies) transfers I find the drive slow.

Two benefits are that it is really quite and tiny!

This is likely fixed in other SSD drives, but be careful which one you get.

I haven't heard of a bug but that drive likely does not support TRIM so as it fills, it slows because it must erase data in blocks before writing.

Could also be a NCQ related thing too right? But yea, lack of TRIM support may be a big factor.


I don't hate macs or OSX, I hate people and statements that portray them as better than anything else. Macs are A solution, not THE solution. Get a good desktop i7 with Windows 7 and come tell me that sucks for photo or video editing.
