Here’s a great benchmark on the laptops we are testing:
70 MB/s average read? 210 MB/s burst speed? Pretty impressive. Let’s compare it against my D830:
This is obviously not a serious benchmark, the OS are not even the same (Vista x86 vs Windows Server 2008 x64). But other than the CPU upgrade (T8300 vs T7500), it explains why is my experience so much better with this unit. Great disk!
