    The best SSD reviews I've seen are done by hardware.fr (and English translation at behardware.com). Richard Hart's articles for tomshardware are also good. Tweaktown is middle-of-the-pack, at most.

    As a misguided and inaccurate reviewer, he has very little room to talk, which is what I pointed out earlier.

    And giving my opinion on reviews in a thread about reviews is certainly not trolling....

    I would expect nothing better from tweaktown. No doubt it will be even worse with your own trace based tests. Constant disimprovement is par for your course.

    Anyone still using PCMark Vantage instead of PCMark 7 is on shakey ground to make such criticism. PCMark 7 is not a great test itself, but it is significantly more realistic and accurate for most...

    Each lane of PCIe is bidirectional (i.e., you can read and write at the same time without either affecting the other), but I will quote the specifications for a single direction.

    I was going to answer, but I realized that it is quite off topic for a thread about ASU. I suggest you start another thread.

    Anything is better than OCZ when it comes to quality. OCZ has a long history of selling low quality SSDs with gimmicks to make them look good in reviews. Definitely avoid OCZ products.

    I suggest you try to calm down and think clearly. Also, Parted Magic should be able to secure erase any SSD. If you cannot boot it, then it is hardly the SSD's fault.

    I've seen lots of weird results on the Vertex 4. Even just looking at AS-SSD results with fw1.5 that are posted on the internet, it seems that the sequential read speed can vary from low 400MB/s up...
