    Thank you for explaining that in one short easy sentence. I should have thought about looking on wikipedia.

    Old post I know, but need to correct some misinformation.

    Aspire 1 SSDs have a dreadfully slow WRITE SPEED. This is the reason why this is SO BLOODY SLOW. You can grow old and die waiting for writes on these things.

    That being said, the read speed is phenomenal. They boot in under 10 seconds (when configured to disable all the useless crap).

    Sounds like something you want AHCI and SATA's native command queuing with.
