Toshiba OCZ TL100 128GB & 256GB SSD Review
Partial and Full Drive Performance
While it is important to know how a drive will perform under optimal conditions, more realistic scenarios are just as important. Knowing if a solid state drive will behave differently when partially or even nearly full than when it is empty is very important information to know. To quickly and accurately show this crucial information we have first filled the drive to 50% capacity and re-tested using both synthetic and real world tests. After the completion of this we then re-test at 75% and 90% of full capacity.
Synthetic Test Results
For our synthetic testing we have opted for our standard PCMark 7 test.
Real World Results
For a real world application we have opted for a modified version of our standard Windows 7 Start Up test. Unlike our standard Windows 7 image this image is based on a working system that has been upgraded numerous times of the past few years and represents an even more realistic real world test.
Toshiba has always made performance stability a priority and even the least expensive model is no exception. Put simply the VL100 outperforms some more expensive drives and almost ties an MX300 525GB drive. That is impressive.
