H2: Windows 10 SSD speed is low

Unread post by mad_ady » Wed Mar 27, 2019 8:45 pm

I've installed Windows 10 on a Kingston 240G SSD (SA400S37/240G) connected to the H2 via the SATA cable sold by Hardkernel. I ran UserBenchmark and for the disk I got 244MB/s read and 151MB/s write speed (sequential). Random speed is much lower (11M read, 42 M write). Test results are here: https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/1 ... chmark.com&

I'm not too familiar with SSD nor Windows, but - are those test results ok for my setup, or are they indeed slow, as userbenchmark reports? If they are slow - where should I be looking? BIOS or windows drivers?

I think you should get 400MB/s read speed at least.
Did you fully update Windows 10?
Can you try more common CrystalDiskMark?

Anyway, I'm not familiar with Windows either.

You're right, CrystalDiskMark shows better numbers.

Looks fine! :)

BTW, that SSD is quite affordable.
$30 at 240GB? :o

I realize that the low price has an associated performance cost... But hey, it was cheap :D

I'd rather go for "Crucial" if you want budget SSDs:

They are a little bit faster normally.
