Monster Digital Daytona 240GB SSD Review - Benchmarks - Sequential Performance

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.

HD Tune is a Hard Disk utility which has the following functions:

 

Benchmark: measures the performance

Info: shows detailed information

Health: checks the health status by using SMART

Error Scan: scans the surface for errors

Temperature display

 

HD Tune Pro gives us accurate read, write and access time results and for the last couple of years has gained popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must have application for storage device testing.

Sequential read performance when working with compressible data has never been an issue with drives using LSI SandForce controllers. Even drives with low cost asynchronous NAND do well here and so does the Monster Digital Daytona 240GB.

Sequential write performance with compressible data is also a strong point for SF based drives.

Here we see sequential reads and writes after heavy random writes. The Daytona still manages to read 128K sequential data at 358MB/s and write the same data at 319MB/s average.
