I’m planning to do some real world performance tests with Solid State Disks vs. the old fashioned spinning media type and am looking for requests.
There’s already loads of raw data throughput tests out there, but I’m planning to do the more “day-to-day” stuff. I’m thinking of simply comparing boot times of SSD and various laptop disks (I’ve only got a laptop to run my tests on). I can also test the performance of virtual machines, time to hibernate & resume, anything really.
What tests would you like to see results for?
First off, an obvious boot-time comparisan between SSD and normal HDD's. Also, maybe test time taken to copy an average 700MB movie to and from both drives, and then maybe a similar test with a bunch of small files? Also, Hibernate/resume time tests would be good :D
