I just cannot say enough about Tom's Hardware. They do everything so scientific, and explain things so well that at the end of the article, you know exactly what's going on. No other benchmark site in the world could do better than this. This is what happens when you put a true professional doing reviews.
I'm not stunned by the conclusion either. I kinda figured that SATAII would still benefit from an SSD. However, I love me some reviews, and this is still interesting none the less. I have always wondered that since SATAII is 3GB/s, I thought it should still be able to deliver roughly the same amount of I/O. And I was right, at least at low QD's. I figured since SATAII is 3GB/s and random I/O isn't 3GB/s yet normally, it should perform the same as or close to SATAIII. Which means even if we upgrade the SATA interface again, we really won't notice much of a real world improvement. Because there's no real world improvement when you double the bandwidth from SATAII to SATAIII.
This article tells me lots of things I didn't know before. If some people wouldn't be so close minded and only see the conclusion then maybe they'd learn something like I did. There was a lot more to this article than what the title says, you just got to read the whole article and study the results.
For all of you complaining... What are you complaining about?! You got to read a great review by the best tech site in the world! Get over yourselves and quit bitching. No one cares if the conclusion was kind of obvious because there are still people out there that didn't know this and personally, I learned a lot. So if you already knew everything there was to know the good for you, but don't complain about it. I mean really? Do you have nothing more to complain about but a great, informative review? That's just sad that some people would complain or make a negative comment about this article.
