Not working with Plextor drive?
tried CrystalDiskInfo like i use?
just remember it is not a good idea to run tests using crystal disk mark on SSDs
Here is my SSD from my Dell Precision M4600...
Why? I use 'Crystal Disk' to check multiple SSD on my system. Whereas using SSD Life, I can only check one SSD. :shadedshu
Edit = I have to pay to SSD-Life Pro just to see all SSD drive. But, 'Crystal Disk' doesn't...
Here is mine
Seems I need to update the firmware on my Vertex 1s to get some trim working...
No health stats for the Marvell Controller, but some of the other stats are there:
here are the results of my two oldest SSDs, a Corsair F40 (SF1200) and Kingston SSDNow V 128 (JMF618) along with my newest Kingston HyperX 3k 240GB (SF2281)
Unfortunately I can't see the life of the 5 remaining SSDs because 2 are in linux based servers (30gb Kingston SSDNow and 40gb Intel X25-V, and the free version of SSDLife only shows you the stats of 1 drive, so the other Kingston SSDNow, OCZ Solid 3 (SF2281), and the 120gb Toshiba I pulled from my MacBook Air (upgraded it to a 180gb SF1200) will just have to wait I guess
But I'm glad to see so many good results, SSDs seem to be more reliable than everyone feared initially.
After reading their website it seems the data they provide on how long the drives have to last is not reliable until a few days after you installed SSDLife.
From their website when looking at how they project the date the drive should last until:
They don't say if this is the date the drive starts to not be able to write data, or if this is the date where the last byte becomes unwritable (or any variation between). So I will take this with a pinch of salt.
He is referring to CrystalDiskMark, a benchmarking tool similar to AS SSD, running either will add wear to the drive so it is not recommended to run either too often.
CrystalDiskInfo though is just an information tool that displays data on HDD's and SSD's, which is what puma99dk| is suggesting.
there is mine
its about the benchmarks. Here is a post from an OCZ staff person they also did an official technical bullitain but i cant find it. it isnt OCZ specific but more about which controller you have. sandforce drives have all sorts of internal utilities that it uses to control wear etc and benching all sorts of fucks them up.
in ultra laymen terms after you write that much data internal trim is going to have a stroke trying to re level all your nands your erase count will skyrocket and in some cases go into a read write "limp" mode.
Any ideas why this utility can't run with the Marvell controller?
I like the idea of knowing EOL for product, not just current status.
see posts #26 and #34.
Yes, I do. And I don't benchmark with CDM like Solaris17 indicates.
I'm still winning!!!!!
i really want to see you fail that drive.
So do I. And I want to see how the Warranty holds up and any reports resulting from the heavy use.
I am all for it, going to clone it to a Corsair just in case, but I plan to run it till the SSD can't boot anymore. In reality, once I clone it, I am going to clone a HTPC OS to this drive and keep using it as if that %-age wasn't even shown to me yet
As far as a warranty, I got this well used, I don't think OCZ will offer anything I can use
the problem with us reviewers is that we like to remove stickers companies other wise wish we wouldnt and then some of them even give us stuff that have sample serial numbers can you believe that? its prejudice.
By 2021 240GB would be what 4GB was in the late 1990's
results for my new HyperX 120GB
Sandisk Extreme 240
Samsung 830 256
I guess it doesn't work too well w/ Samsung....?
I updated to the latest 1.5 firmware for this Ocz Vertex 4 128GB drive and got a later end run time score
