There was no doubt that the Crucial RealSSD C300 would blaze past the limits of SATA II. Here we see the fastest solid state drive on the market blasting past the competition.
The write speed is another story. Here we see several Indilinx Barefoot drives putting up higher numbers. The minimum write speed of the C300 looks really low in the graph, but there were just a few spots on the drive where it would dip in performance. Later in the review we will show the full graph.
