Synthetic Test Results

Though our timed benchmark tests do a fair job of simulating performance in real world situations, it doesn't tell the whole story. Synthetic tests like HD Tune and CrystalDiskMark help fill the gap. Note: on SSDs, a full format was conducted before running these tests.

The SX300 appears to be the king of sequential performance, outpacing all comers by a comfortable margin, aside from the HyperX 3K 240GB.

Random performance was a mixed bag with the SX300 excelling with large 512K blocks and the 525 performing slightly better with the smaller 4K size. Write speed seems to be Achilles' heel of both drives compared to the Samsung 830 and Corsair Force GS.
