Note: In this test we use the Lenovo W530 Mobile Workstation loaded with an operating system and several program files. The data on the drive at the time of the test is 45GB. The second test, 50GB Free, was ran with the drives filled with block data until only 50GB of free capacity remained.

Rebooting Windows 7 Ultimate on our Lenovo W530 times are nearly identical across the board. When we started this test we hoped for more variation, but that just wasn't the case.

 

SSDs are limited by Windows and hardware start sequences more than SSD performance. Mechanical drives, or spinners as I call them, increase boot times significantly.
