Battlefield 3 had the WD Blue slightly quicker than our Ultrathin, which sits at 365.5 seconds.

A heavy use scenario allows for the Momentus Thin and our sample of the Laptop Ultrathin to come within three seconds of each other.

The Excel application trace has our drive at 27.4 seconds, again very close to the WD Blue and older Momentus Thin.
