What make is the drive Bob and is it an Indilinx based controller or a Sandforce controller.

The images I am posting show the difference between the 2. The Patriot Inferno has the Sandforce controller and is much faster.



The Vertex is older and has the Indilinx Controller which is slower.

OK, the only information I find on the controller is in the Device Manager and it tells me it is - AMD AHCI Compatible RAID Controller.

Get a file hosting account for free at a place like imageshack or the best i have found over the years is http://photobucket.com/

It is free and all you do is upload your images and once done they supply the code for the image and you just copy and paste it anywhere in your post and wala the pic appears.

Always use the code which starts with the [img] tag

They look great Bob! Those numbers look really good better than my vertex. Mine is an older first generation Vertex with the indilinx controller yours has to be a second generation with the sandforce controller.

What is the actual name and model # of your vertex? it is on the bottom of the drive.

Hi smile
Easiest way to post image here.
Just use the "Host an image" button.
Found in bar menu at top of post area.
Click on it , browse etc.
Job done.
This does not affect forum capacity. Wink

Latest HDTune is 4.60 {28/8/2010} http://www.hdtune.com/download.html
Using this version is more accurate.
Of particular note is access time.
Should be more like 0.098 secs or less.
Whereas both of you show 0.1 secs.

I will open it up again later today and see if it gives anything other than Vertex Series 60GB. How do you tell what the controller is?

Once you have the actual model number off the back you just look on the website support for the specs!

Nice speeds guys. I look on with envious eyes and an ssd is not a close reality for me at the moment.

That is the exact same Vertex as I have Bob. I am still waiting to RMA the other one that died a few weeks ago on me.

Hate to say it but I have had 2 of these dye on me now...

It's gone! I'm not shelling out the kind of money some folks have mentioned to me. Just put it down as another one of those PITA things that happen in life...

Joel , have you looked at the new OCZ Agility SSDs, they are cheaper and faster than the Vertex Line.
