With that average sequential read speed of about 345 ( thats what mine gets) This is by far the fastest ssd for the price. A few things that may be helpfull while setting this up: Before you install windows onto it , check to see if your mobo is ahci compatible. If it is set the sata mode to ahci. Also once your done installing , disable defragmenting , prefetching and drive indexing. Enabling Windows TRIM is essential also. Take the time to have a look at one of the more indepth ssd tweaking guides to make sure your getting the most out of this. Hope this was helpfull . 4 stars for the read speed , write speed is terrible.
