Note: In this test we use the Lenovo W530 Mobile Workstation and a SuperSSpeed S301 SLC 128GB SSD to move a 15GB block of data to and from the target drive. This is part of our real-world test regiment. Roughly 45GB of data resides on the target drive before the '15GB Block' is transfer. The 15GB Block is the same data we built for the Data on Disk Testing and is a mix of compressible and incompressible data.

The folder full of data transfer from one SSD to another caught me off guard at first until I remembered the HD Tune Pro results. RAPID didn't have an impact in this test, but we did see an improvement to the data writing to the EVO over the 840.
