New puppy in the house: VTR1-25SAT3-128G

I bought another SSD it's a VTR1-25SAT3-128G, so far so good, here's are Crystaldiskmark results:

The results are lower than what I can find on the internet, but I think that is because my fairly old chipset (880G/SB850)..

SSD Secure Erase Performance gain - is it a myth?

I was reading some articles about secure erase and it improves the performance of the SSD's.. so I tried it.
I made a backup with clonezilla of my system SSD mentioned in the previous post and I reran Crystaldiskmark, here are the results:

The only difference between the two runs regarding the SSD was that this time I had more free space because I moved some stuff to my new SSD.

So... read is practically is the same Write is better but maybe because the more free space.. strangely the 4K write/read was better before.
What do you think?

OCZ Agility 4 64G review after 1 year

I bought this SSD (AGT4-25SAT3-64G) 1 year (+2 days) ago, It's functioning OK, which means I had 0 BSODs or failures..
I'm not much of a benchmark guy and I use this ssd as the system drive so I'm not sure how relevant this benchmark will be, but I made the same benchmark for my "storage" hdd too which is a ST3250820AS.

OCZ SSD: 


Seagate HDD:



SSD Boot video #1: clean user: no startup programs




SSD Boot video #2: normal user: many startup programs



Here's a tutorial which I followed when I bought the SSD: THE SSD OPTIMIZATION GUIDE REDESIGNED
