Hi, I just received a brand new X25-V 40GB that came with original firmware 02HB. I immediately updated to the new official firmware 02HD; loaded the OS and etc.; performed the Intel SSD toolbox maintenance; then proceeded to do some benchmarks.
Lo and behold, I got slow READ at about 115MB/sec.Writes look OK at about 40 MB/sec. My other OCZ Vertex SSD performs at >200MB/sec READs from the same system, so I know it's not the system.
Is there a problem with the new firmware 02HD for this X25-V line? I did not benchmark with the original 02HB fw, but read online that some user got >180MB/sec READ with 02HB. Thanks for your help.
