Default Re: It's a Boot Race!

This test is absolute BS. Timing from the moment the BIOS hands off to the SSD for loading Windows, to the login screen is only 7 seconds, it takes me 3 to type my login, and then 2 seconds more before the desktop is ready to use. This benchmark is BS. It adds too much time for after your at a usable desktop for it's own processing.

The benchmark reported 24 seconds, but spent 12 of those second on a usable desktop going through it's own internal crap, and still timing it. So, of the benchmark's reported 24 seconds, only 12 of them are valid, and that's including how long it takes to type my fairly complex password.
