The Zalman F1 is quite the little firecracker. When reading sequential data across the drive in FOB state we scored 432MB/s average with a maximum of nearly 440MB/s.

The sequential writes with compressible data are not bad either. Our maximum write burst was nearly 440MB/s, but the average dropped down to 407MB/s.
