For my testing I'm using my custom built 3rd Gen i7 Workstation with an ASUS P8Z68-V PRO Motherboard running Win8.1 x64. Each drive tested was connected as a 2nd drive to the on-board Intel 6GB SATA controller. These drives were also brand new, never used. Just partitioned, quick format, and off we go with tests. The two benchmark programs are CrystalDiskMark and AS SSD. I'll be uploading benchmark results for this drive separately.
Without going into too much technical detail, I'll briefly explain what I'm talking about below. A sequential test is where it simply read/writes large blocks of data that are physically adjacent to each other on the drive, one after another. Not all real-world data use will fall into this category, but half would be a reasonable assumed average. The other is the random test, where we read/write 4K or 512K (depending on test) blocks of data to various locations on the drive. This usually makes up the other half of day-to-day disk usage. Compare them back to back and you have a pretty good idea how the drive will perform in your hands.
CRUCIAL 550 (512GB)
The Crucial 550 didn't quite hit the advertised speeds, but we should note that your results will vary depending on your configuration. I'm sure Crucial's test bed was a bit more optimized than a random desktop. Sequential Read was 478MB/s and 466MB/s Write with Crystal Mark. 4K Random Read hit 25MB/s and 69MB/s Write.Read more ›

To replace possibly malfunctioning manufacturer-specific Serial ATA drivers or a non compatible SATA Driver we need to replace it with Microsoft's MSAHCI or StorAHCI drivers which may have better functionality/compatibility in your system, use the following guide:
1. Enter Device Manager in Windows via either your Control Panel or Computer Management.
2. You should see a category of "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers or Storage Controller driver". Click the 'plus' symbol to the left of this line to expand that category.
3. All manufacturer drivers under this category will appear. For each entry, right click, select 'Update driver software'
4. Then you need select browse my system.
5. Then select pick from list of drivers.
6. Select the "Standard AHCI 1.0 Serial ATA Controller"
7. Then click next and the system will reboot and the driver will be swapped and you can go back in there to confirm that.
