Hello,

 

few days ago I bought a freshly Corsair 120 GB SSD F-120GB3-BK. I installed Windows 7 new before (AHCI and SATA 3 were enabled) but the performance are below SATA 2 Values. Look here (CrystalDiskMark):

You see my configuration in my panel

 

In order that I have still the poss. to send it back to my retailer I have now to decide: keeping the sdd or not? Is there something wrong with that drive or not?

 

A firmware update is not possible (because sending back to reatialer)

Yes, that's normal. The Force 3 SSD performs best with compressible data and ATTO uses compressible data for benchmark. Since the advertised speed was measured with ATTO, this is the one you should take to compare perfomance. CDM and AS SSD are both using incompressible data, that's the reason why you will see worse results from those benchmark tools. The new Performance Pro will handle incompressible data faster.
