Our write transfer is 100GB in size and composed of more than 62,000 files. Not an easy transfer - as demonstrated by the Cardea Liquid. Disappointing. We are looking for over 500 MB/s test results, and the Cardea Liquid falls short, leading us to believe that this SSD does not have 96L on board as we earlier assumed, and is in fact sporting 64L flash, as reported by reviews done last year.

Ok, here we go. 2,332 MB/s is redemption for the Cardea Liquid. Reading data is always more important in a typical consumer usage scenario, and with performance like that, it is easier to overlook the drive's inferior write transfer performance.

Although we are always looking for sub 11-second performance, the Cardea Liquid delivers very well for an E12 powered SSD.
