The higher sequential rating for the V100 came through in HD Tach where we measure reads across the drive. The V100 scored an average read speed of nearly 205MB/s.

The sequential write speed across the drive was a bumpy road for the SSDNow V100. The maximum speed of 191MB/s is respectable, but the drive managed to dip all the way down to 98MB/s, something we've seen with JMicron based drives in the past. The average score suffered as a result of the dips, but 157MB/s is still faster than most platter drives available on the market today.
