"This is where Marvell 88SS9174 based SSDs become the starts of this show."

Stars of the show.

I would love if you included:

1) Game loading tests
2) OS bootup to screen tests (maybe how long it takes to Restart the system too)
3) Real world transfer tests from an SSD to a mechanical drive and vice versa.
4) Real world transfer tests from 1 partition of an SSD to another (large files >10GB and then hundreds of small files).
5) Time to virus scan the entire drive when it's full.

If you have a good (not one of the best) ssd, you know that the results of this make near to no difference.
SSD articles have become just like motherboard reviews - as long as they do 50+ uncompresable random writes and 500+ sequential read, they are all the same. Just like all motherboard reaching 4.8GHz (and 5.3GHz with enough voltage)differentiate only by looks.

most files are not compressible so you are better with the Marvel controller, i own Plextor M2p 128gig and its great and scores better then the ocz vertex 3 !

Yea, Corsair Performance Pro is definitely the best SSD to get now. I saw a really nice deal the other day but I already have several 128DB SSDs and can't really justify the expense. My next upgrade would be a 256GB or 512GB SSD Corsair Performance Pro, if the price has come down.

I wish you included the Samsung 830 into this mix. It's also an important player in the SSD world.
