Silicon Power S60 240GB SSD Review

Total Access Time - All Tests

 

The access time test measures the total latency across all 18 tests. This is one of, if not the most important of all tests we run at this time for consumer SSDs. When your latency is low, your computer feels fast; it's just that simple.

The latency chart tells the full story.

 

Total Access Time - Heavy Load

The Silicon Power S60 240GB is just awful under heavy workloads. To put it into perspective, the best drive in this test, the SanDisk Extreme PRO, passes the test with around 190 seconds of latency (total time). The Silicon Power S60 240GB peaks at over 6500 seconds in the worst result. Even when the S60 does well in the heavy workload test, the latency is around 3000.

 

Total Access Time - Typical Consumer Load

Again, the latency is much better in the typical consumer workloads, but the S60 still has more latency than nearly every other drive on the chart.
