    After ordering one, I logged back in with my non-Prime account & found an extra $10 off

    D'oh! Well good news is that mine arrived and is already running benchmarks while I go for a run.

    2 questions:

    1) What benchmarks do you run? I've got some enterprise 6 gig SAS drives. I'd like to do some "apples to apples" comparisons.

    2) Do you bench these drives empty or with data

    I am running Atto, CrystalDiskMark (64-bit), Anvil (new with the Samsung 830 review), HD Tune Pro, AS SSD.

    Generally I do the secure erase no data version. However, I am going to take a look at the Crucial M4, Samsung 830, Vertex 4, and a SandForce drive all with 50% data fill in a comparison piece.

    If you want to bench and do a quick writeup that might be really cool. Even if you just had the benches I can write the drive ones fairly quickly as I do have a pretty standardized outline being used.
