Re: Crucial 32GB SSD for mini 9 is out!

those read/write times are pretty bad.

The STEC is better read with about the same write.

The Runcore is better read and WAY better write.

Re: Error message installing Windows 7

Rather than disable SuperFetch altogether, a better way would be to set it to cache boot files only. SuperFetch does have a purpose and just turning it completely off will only gain you some disk...

do you have compression on?

I know JKK saw similar results with compression on, like 600mb/sec read.

Re: runcore or dell 32gb

if that's true then I would get a Runcore over the Stec. The write times on the Runcore are much better, and the read are not much different between them, from what I've seen on my machine anyway.
