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 cache fills. This usually happens only with controllers manufactured by JMicron and Toshiba.
VisionTek has a mainstream brand and that doesn't mean enthusiasts per se, the market that already adapted SSDs with open arms. I know a lot of users who have VisionTek products and they are not balls to the wall overclockers or even gamers. I'm bringing this up because most of the marketing for SSDs is based around massive sequential performance. 500MB/s sounds amazing, but rarely do mainstream users get anywhere near that performance because they are not heavy multi-taskers.
Access times on the other hand affect performance across the board. It doesn't matter if you are just surfing FaceTwit posts, turning on your computer or loading Battlefield 3. Access times are what make SSDs feel fast and at the bottom of the page we see the read access times for a very fast, prosumer grade HDD with 10K RPM platters. The difference in performance is massive and this is performance you feel when doing everything on your computer.
Here we see the difference in write access times between the VisionTek Racer and the same prosumer HDD with 10K platters. SSDs are displacing HDDs, even very fast HDDs, as boot drives and VisionTek is targeting mainstream users whom may not be hip to solid-state drives, or why they are the very best upgrade you can slide into your computer today.
