Samsung 840 Series 120GB Solid State Drive Review

Testing – Anvil & AS SSD
The next test is Anvil Storage Utilities, which is a really great piece of software. The SSD benchmark gives you scores for both read and write as well as a combined score.

We also use Anvil to test IOPS. With the queue depth set to 32 we tested both read and write IOPS.


Our final test is the AS SSD Benchmark. This benchmark contains four synthetic as well as three practice tests. It also not only shows you the transfer speeds but also IOPS.


The AS SSD program has a copy benchmark included with it. This benchmark shows you the speed and how long it would take to load an ISO, Program and Game. Here are the results from that test, lower times are better.

AS SSD also has a compression benchmark included. Here are the results from that test.
