    SIMS > 10secs
    Office (word, outlook) normaly instant.

    Anything else slightly slow as i run a 1tb 2nd drive.

    My downside my motherboard is only SATA3. not the faster one.
    I thought SATA 3 aka 6gbps was the faster one, SATA 2 aka 3gbps was the slower one ?

    SATA I (revision 1.x) interface, formally known as SATA 1.5Gb/s, is the first generation SATA interface running at 1.5 Gb/s. The bandwidth throughput, which is supported by the interface, is up to 150MB/s.

    SATA II (revision 2.x) interface, formally known as SATA 3Gb/s, is a second generation SATA interface running at 3.0 Gb/s. The bandwidth throughput, which is supported by the interface, is up to 300MB/s.

    SATA III (revision 3.x) interface, formally known as SATA 6Gb/s, is a third generation SATA interface running at 6.0Gb/s. The bandwidth throughput, which is supported by the interface, is up to 600MB/s. This interface is backwards compatible with SATA 3 Gb/s interface.

    SATA II specifications provide backward compatibility to function on SATA I ports. SATA III specifications provide backward compatibility to function on SATA I and SATA II ports. However, the maximum speed of the drive will be slower due to the lower speed limitations of the port.

    Example: SanDisk Extreme SSD, which supports SATA 6Gb/s interface and when connected to SATA 6Gb/s port, can reach up to 550/520MB/s sequential read and sequential write speed rates respectively. However, when the drive is connected to SATA 3 Gb/s port, it can reach up to 285/275MB/s sequential read and sequential write speed rates respectively.
    My Bad. opps i got them mixed up...

    to be fair, my first day (which would clone my HDDs) would ruin that 40GB limit in 1 hit. Would copy over maybe close to 250GB. lol

    I assume it means an average 40GB a day, i.e. "5 years" actually means a total workload of approximately 57 TB

    Depends how tight they are really, if you had it die on you on day two you'd hope they'd replace it as being obviously faulty but if they turned around and said you were only covered up to 80GB then you're up the creek lol. I imagine it would be seen as an obvious fault though and replaced, they're just covering their backs because they dropped the "enterprise" bomb in their spec list lol
