Monster Digital Daytona 240GB SSD Review - Benchmarks - PCMark Vantage Hard Disk Tests

Monster Digital Daytona 240GB SSD Review
We finally received TRIM enabled firmware for the Daytona, a SSD we've had for several months. The late firmware was just the start of issues that surround the Daytona and the sum of all of these problems lead us to question anyone buying a SSD from Monster Digital.

PCMark Vantage is the first objective hardware performance benchmark for PCs running 32 and 64 bit versions of Microsoft Windows Vista. PCMark Vantage is perfectly suited for benchmarking any type of Microsoft Windows Vista PC from multimedia home entertainment systems and laptops to dedicated workstations and high-end gaming rigs. Regardless of whether the benchmarker is an artist or an IT Professional, PCMark Vantage shows the user where their system soars or falls flat, and how to get the most performance possible out of their hardware. PCMark Vantage is easy enough for even the most casual enthusiast to use yet supports in-depth, professional industry grade testing.

 

FutureMark has developed a good set of hard disk tests for their PCMark Vantage Suite. Windows users can count on Vantage to show them how a drive will perform in normal day to day usage scenarios. For most users these are the tests that matter since many of the old hat ways to measure performance have become ineffective to measure true Windows performance.

The Monster Digital Daytona 240GB does well when empty in our real world daily use benchmarks. The catch in that sentence is when the drives are empty.
