Hrmmm, I wonder what aspect of the hardware causes it to perform so much worse than the ForceGT at times.

Regardless, in recent years SSDs have been doing better than HDDs in every category except cost per GB, longevity, and total capacity, having resolved poor write times some time ago. Now it seems a matter of finding a cost-effective way of getting high capacities out of these without compromising endurance and making it so it costs even less per GB and it would be a viable alternative to HDDs for everyone.

That is, assuming they've also solved that issue with SSDs not doing so well after 10's of thousands of rewrites? I guess HDDs still have the edge there too?

If so, there is always the next generation of storage. I don't remember the details, but I know they're working on it.

I was surprised by the performance myself, but anytime we do a review we make sure we have the latest drivers for all of our hardware. The firmware for the Agility was updated to the latest which is 1.52 using OCZ's SSD toolbox. And to make sure the test was valid I ran them twice.
