aikixen Posted September 15, 2009 Share Posted September 15, 2009 I just bought two Corsair SSDs, one X128 for my home pc and an X32 for my work laptop. The X128 is running Win7 and is smoking fast compared to the WD Raptor it replaced...love it. I just installed the X32 in an HP6730s laptop and used the HP disks to install Vista 32bit on it. Once I got all the drivers installed, I ran HD Tach and was surprised to see read time average of 116, instead of 200 or higher like the X128. Since these are my first SSDs, I was just wondering what the issue might be? I know Win7 is more optimized for SSDs, but is this the type of performance to expect from Vista? or maybe it's just the laptop hardware holding it back? I will most likely try aninstall of Win7 to see if there's any speed change, but thought I would post here as well. The laptop has: 1) Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processor T7370 (2.00 GHz, 3 MB L2 cache, 1066 MHz FSB) 2) Mobile Intel® GM45 Express Chipset ICH9M-Enhanced 3) 2GB 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM Any info / suggestions greatly appreciated Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
