im not sure i understood how the times were measured for the file transfers. was there a stopwatch involved or something? im just questioning the accuracy of the results. in any case, good read, nice performance, but still too expensive for my liking.

We use a stop watch and run the test multiple times to make sure we have an accurate reading. However, in today's SSD market the file sizes we are using are too small and we are in the process of changing them over from the current sizes to ones of up to 20GB.

i guess that would explain why the 100mb files were all showing a transfer time of 0 then, huh?

Yeah, that test finishes before I can even start my stopwatch.

I want to get one of there, well the 120GB version (more affordable) but I wanted to understand the potential issues with TRIM not being supported, could it lead to failure of the drive over time, or loss of data etc?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Barry

The Revo 3 series does support TRIM, the problem lies with Windows instead. This issue should be sorted out though with Windows 8, but until that time TRIM will not be fully supported. However, the SandForce controller has its own internal processes to clean the drive, stop using dead cells and so on. So, there really should be any long term issues with the Revo 3, even without full TRIM support.

Also, TRIM is not supported in any RAID setup, so even if you went with two or more SSDs instead of a REVO drive you would have the same issue.

Thanks for reading our review and submitting a question! If you have anymore questions you can submit it here or send me a PM
