WasteXTC Posted April 30, 2009 Share Posted April 30, 2009 Tonight I got the P256 up and running on my Vista Ultimate 64-bit laptop via disk to disk copy from factory platter HD. Needless to say the performance boost was noticed immediately! Eager to really test it out I've managed to make the system freeze for about 60-120 seconds after hardcore usage. Situation 1: Using the Eraser freeware program from SourceForge I was erasing a 450MB file with three passes of data. Once the third pass was just about done, Windows froze and the hard drive activity late was illuminated continuously. After that two minutes the system went back to normal. Situation 2: Using Adobe Lightroom 2.3 (64-bit) I was flipping through Canon RAW image files, probably clicking a little too fast. The activity light did the same thing and stayed on for about two minutes. The music which was buffered into memory playing in the background started looping one short segment. Two minutes later, the system went back to normal. Is this normal? Am I being too harsh? I have "Enable write caching on the disk" and "Enable advanced performance" checked on the drive. Not sure if that's a factor or not. Still pretty darn happy about the drive. If it's a matter of slowing down and not doing so many things at once, I suppose I can do that. ;D Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
