I read a review on Anandtech a few months ago when the SSD was still relatively new, and despite coming out on absolute top along with stuff like 840 Pro, I haven't seen a single post about it on any of the forums I visit. Really weird. I also had really hard time finding a store which would sell it over here.

Anyway, I seem to be getting somewhat inconsistent results when I rerun the benchmark. I restarted the PC and made sure nothing was running, and got 390MB/s min and 420 max speeds. Next time the min speed jumped to ~405. Now I tried again under load and seem to be getting 420-460.

Just got my "I'm tired of using a flash drive, what's the cheapest thing on eBay?" drive. It appears to be a Seagate Momentus 5400.2 60GB.
Code:
root@slax:~# hdparm -tT /dev/sda

/dev/sda:
Timing cached reads:  5166 MB in  2.00 seconds = 2588.37 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 122 MB in  3.02 seconds =  40.34 MB/sec
I think I'm going to regret this decision after a little while. :p

Edit: I don't expect to be added to the list, but if you're interested in a new low score, I could hop over on WinPE and run a fairly clean HDTune and whatnot.

It is the most reliable drive I have at the moment. Maybe it will be replaced in 2015 (or before (if not after), not sure).

The whole PC looks like ten years old, lol.
The drive's performance is limited by UDMA 2 (33MB/s). The drive itself can achieve UDMA 6 speed (133MB/s). Its power on hours is less than 2 years.

If I am not mistaken.

Is just for fun. People started posting them here and there so I figured why not.

That one took a little bit. With that being said, updated.
