AIDA64 offers 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 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 and Toshiba.
I can't stress the importance of access time enough when reviewing SSDs. Most of the marketing talk coming from companies covers the high transfer rates, but when it comes to the way your system feels while moving from one place to another, the access time is what really counts.
In both the read and write tests the Pyro SE scored an average access time of just .18ms. The maximum in both tests only got up to .19 (lower is better) so there wasn't a lot of variation here either. We really like the steady performance offered by the Pyro SE. It offers a solid foundation for you to build your system around.
