System Test After Adding the mSATA SSD
Some test are too slow to carry out.
- Main SSD with almost full files
The performance is still very good as just bought.
- RamDisk is still the best, over 10 times of SSD
- Crucial M4 128GB mSATA is slightly weaker than M5P. Not to mention it is empty.
And also here is a review of this mSATA SSD.
- Mobile HDD(the original hdd came with x230) with USB 3.0
The difference with SSD is obvious especially the random test.
- SanDisk Extreme 16GB Flash Disk
Extrodinary read, poor write and worst random.
- SD Card 16GB
Worst at any field.
