Monster Digital Daytona 240GB SSD Review - Benchmarks - AIDA64 Random Access Time

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.

AIDA64 Random Access Time

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.60

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..

Monster Digital's Daytona 240GB drive is at the upper end of the scale when it comes to read latency, even for a drive based on the SandForce architecture. Without a DRAM buffer the latency increases, but as you can see when comparing the Daytona to Intel's 520 Series, the Daytona has a little more latency and thus a less enjoyable user experience.

The write latency is also on the high side, but we really don't expect one shoe to not follow the other.
