PCMark Vantage & SiSoft Sandra 2010
PCMark Vantage v1.01 measures the performance of the latest PC hardware across a variety of common scenarios. PCMark Vantage supports both system level and component level benchmarking and comprises several different test suites but for the purposes of this review, we stuck with just the HDD suite. The nice thing about PCMark Vantage is that you can submit your scores online and compare against others.
Benchmark Results: This is a very good overall score for the Zephyr as compared to the JMicron controlled 128GB Kingston V Series which was comparable in most of the other scores save for the app loading.
SiSoftware Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility. Sandra provides most of the information (including undocumented) you need to know about your hardware, software and other devices whether hardware or software.

WRITE Performance Testing:
Benchmark Results: Again, we see performance indicative of a value series SSD which is still a good bit better than even the fastest HDD.
