Final Testing and Conclusion
Intel QX6700 CPU
Asus P5K3 Deluxe
Corsair Twinx3x2048-1600 DDR3
Western Digital Caviar 16Mb 7200rpm SATA HDD
OCZ GameXstream 700W
We used the following software to benchmark the drive, Pcmark Vantage HDD and also timed reboot, startup and shutdown times in Windows.
In Winrar we can clearly see a difference both zipping and unzipping. The SSD drive is way faster and silent which makes it a excellent choice if you can afford it.
The only flaw that I see with these drives is the actual price, they are just way to expensive for a normal user but with time I know the prices will drop and the sizes of the driver will increase. This 64GB drive could work well though as a software/windows disk and will for sure speed things up. I don’t think there is much more I can say about this drive than it outperforms normal drives and even after longer times of high load the drive doesn’t heat up nor does it make any noise. Finally the old harddrives might get replaced with something better, they have been the bottlenecks for a longer period of time now and this is what I will for sure recommend you guys to get.
+ Stays cool
