Here is the interesting stuff. If you've ever taken probability and statistics, you will know that in a probability distribution function, the chances of getting an exact value is zero. Well, in this case, against all odds (No pun intended), all three SSDs came out to exactly 266.7MB/s for the linear disk read results. Talk about a weird coincidence. Other than that, the OCZ Vertex 2 60GB 34nm took the lead in our Random Read tests, but fell short of the others in the Buffered Read results. Average access time is virtually nil, as one would expect from an SSD.
