CrystalDiskMark is a free utility maintained by Japanese company Crystal Dew World. CrystalDiskMark evaluates the performance of your hard drives based on two tests – a sequential read/write test and a random read/write test. You can select the drive to test, the number of test and the size of the data to test which can be 50MB, 100MB, 500MB and 1000MB. The results displayed below have been conducted using 5 rounds of the 500MB test.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Results Analysis
 
As you can see from the results above, the OCZ Summit wins out in all but the highest sequential read test but still hitting the advertised speed with ease. This has put paid to my previous concerns regarding the HDTach and HDTune readings. In all the other tests, the OCZ Summit is clearly the fastest drive in both read and write tests. The mechanical drives simply pale in comparison with even the Velociraptor crumbling under the immense speed both the Vertex and more importantly, the Summit SSD's offer.

Yeah I hear ya on the price. Still when people are paying £100 for 30GB I guess it's not so bad lol especially when you consider this is no 'run of the mill' drive.Quote

Fair point i guess.... hopefully if nathan is correct,the introduction of cheaper ssd's will drive down the price of other more expensive ones. These will def be lower performance drives in comparison to the summit and vertex though Quote

It greatly depends on the amount of cache the drives carry. Cheap drives usually mean less cache and I would be very hesitant before buying a drive with little/no cache as you will get stutter problems.Quote
