Hello! I have a Samsung 840 Evo 500 GB SSD. Usually I get Scores of around 200-500 MBps for both read and write tests. I used Samsung Magician to run the tests. I was checking some SSDs on userbenchmark.com, and thought I might as well download their benchmarking software mainly to compare my SSD to the scores they have on their website. This is the SSD result for the first benchmark test: And for further evidence, here's the link to the test: http://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/142583 I thought the software glitched somehow, so I figured I should run the test again: I closed every other running software to improve my CPU and graphic cards score, but apparently it even improved the SSD's score. Here is the link for the test: http://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/142586 Then, I thought the software itself is bogus, and to confirm that I ran the test on Samsung Magician which used to give me less than 500 MBps on both read and write speeds. To my surprise, even Samsung Magician showed similar results: To make sure I'm not going crazy, I looked at the history of Samsung Magician, and I was right. something did change with the SSD's benchmark results: I even restarted my PC, and re-ran Samsung's test. Again, similar results: ___________________________________________________________________________ Now, my question is, can anyone explain why I am getting these results? Is there a better way/ software (free, please) that I can use to get accurate results?
