What about all the stuff I keep reading about performance of SSD drives dropping significantly during multitasking?
I read a review on newegg where someone said they were getting drops to the 20Mb\sec range in multitasking with on of the OCZ drives, which is horribly slow for a modern drive.
EDIT: Nevermind, I guess I should have read the article.
Here is their summary at the end...
At the high level, SSDs are still the key to truly solid performance and this is where the issues with the JMicron based MLC drives are really unfortunate, because it means that the most accessible SSDs on the market can actually deliver a pretty bad user experience. But if you look at what Intel's X25-M and the Samsung SLC drives can deliver, it's really quite good.
As I've mentioned before, the random write issues with JMicron JMF602 based MLC SSDs are simply unacceptable and in my opinion they make the drives unusable for use in any desktop or notebook that you actually care about. Next year we may see a JMicron controller that fixes the problem but until then, I'd consider those drives off limits.
This thing is fast, and I want one in my system...actually, two. It's the only SSD that I would actually go out, buy and stick in my desktop machine at this point. I think that's the first time I've ever said something like that in a review, but I'm absolutely convinced.
Sounds like these are a huge improvement over other models.
