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.

The latency results show the Ultra II performing very well when out of steady states. In our opinion, the latency results are more important than the throughput results.

Disk Busy Time

In the final test, we measure the amount of time the drive worked to read and write the data to complete the test. When a drive is active, it uses more power so the faster it can complete the tasks the faster it can fall into a low power state.

The disk busy time is nearly identical to the latency results. We often can link disk busy time to notebook battery life, but not in this case.
