Everest Random Access Time
Everest Ultimate and Corporate Edition offer several different benchmarks for testing and optimizing your system or network. The Random Access test is one of very few if not only that will measure hard drives random access times in hundredths of milliseconds as oppose to tens of milliseconds.
Drives with only one or two tests displayed in write the write test mean that they have failed the test and their Maximum and possibly their Average Scores were very high after the cached fills. This usually happens only with controllers manufactured by JMicron.
Access times are what give SSDs their 'feel' when multitasking and even when just moving between one window to another. Traditional platter drives are sold in 10,000 and even 15,000 RPM models to obtain lower access times, but even at those high speeds SSDs are still able to access data faster since they have no moving parts. The Kingston SSDNow V+100 has a very low read access time and would give the user a great experience when reading back data.
The write access time chart tells us some good and bad news. The good news is that Toshiba has managed to reduce their write access time considerably since the previous generation. The bad news is that once the cache buffer fills with data the controller still takes a long time to get the data to the NAND flash.
We've been very hard on both JMicron and Toshiba in articles, but they are making progress. This test fills the buffer rapidly, much faster than what you would be able to in real world, day to day tasks, so in that sense this isn't a true test of real world performance. We'd still like to see Toshiba get a better handle on their write access times, though.
