Total Access Time


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




Often times, the latency is more important than the throughput. Latency is what makes your computer feel fast, more to the point, the lack of latency.


The Force Series LX did very poorly in the consistency test and the latency presented in the chart leads us to believe this model should have a larger DRAM buffer to cache more of the table data.


Disk Busy Time




The disk busy time can often tell us a bit about how a drive will perform in our notebook battery life test. The faster a drive can complete a task, the faster it can drop to a low power state.


In this section, we see the Force LX 512GB did a bit better than in the latency test, but the results were still poor.
