    For the benchmarks I choose to give a mix of synthetic and real-world tests that are both repeatable and should provide a good basis for comparison.  The problem is knowing exactly what people are looking for when choosing a storage solution.  While some sites might go into the timing ticks of the individual NAND chips or latency of the controller I find that to be a little too technical.  (says the reviewer who benchmarks CPUs down to the thousands of a second)

    Instead, I find that these tests allow readers to easily verify my results and decide for themselves if this product meets their needs.
