Shocked? Me too, so shocked by the low performance in real world testing that I ran the Crucial CT32GBFAB0 on several systems and came up with the same results, every time. At that point I spent a considerable amount of time looking around the web at various reviews of the same drive to see if others were getting the same performance. The results of my search were also just as shocking; time after time the Crucial CT32GBFAB0 received praise and awards from just about every one of the reviews that I read. All of these reviews were based off of simple "Read / Write" tests with absolutely no real world application other than forum bragging rights to a number that has been proven time and time again to mean absolutely nothing.
The good news is that the CT32GBFAB0 is Crucial's first run at an SSD offering. There are a few other companies that are on their third and fourth SSD release with many trial and error sessions in their first two generation products. Crucial and their parent company Lexar have already announced their follow up solid state drives that we should see before the holidays. The claimed speed of the new drive is comparable to the fastest drives on the market now which are solely marketed for enterprise users and carry an enterprise price. Hopefully Crucial is able to keep their new drives price as low as the CT32GBFAB0 and it should be a great product.
