Some explanations about the problem noticed by Pierre:
http://www.anandtech.com/show/4159/ocz- ... 2500-ssd/6
The values in that article are for a large SSD. Adjust for a lower capacity and you get Pierre's problem. Notice how TRIM is basically useless (not in general: just as a fix to that particular performance issue). And how benchmarking apps don't do as good a job as looking at the speed at which compressed videos are copied.

Heh, you beat me to it. I wrote it up in today's news blurb and even linked to the thread. I guess it helps that you are 6 time zones ahead of me. :)

Nice find...thanks a lot...

Haven't considered the issue that much in the meantime...my SSD learning "enthusiasm" (well, I can't quite call it that really) has diminished and I have pretty much stopped following developments...right now I am just enjoying the lack of the growling hdd noise, whatever it is I am doing....

Performance has certainly dropped, though, and I will be running a secure erase soon to start afresh...
