I have been using HDTach for many years now and always find it is an invaluable benchmark to ascertain potential levels of performance. HD Tach is a low level hardware benchmark for random access read/write storage devices such as hard drives, removable drives (ZIP/JAZZ), flash devices, and RAID arrays. HD Tach uses custom device drivers and other low level Windows interfaces to bypass as many layers of software as possible and get as close to the physical performance of the device possible.
Not the best synthetic test for the latest SSD drives, but worth including as a point of interest. The Kingston drive takes third place, behind the ADATA S511 240GB and OCZ Vertex 3 240GB drives.
