    The Vertex doesn't feel slow, does it?

    The Vertex 1 feels to me like a modern SSD... fast.

    I used my Vertex 1 32 GB for nearly a year, then upgraded to my 320 series 160 GB...just as fast.

    Newer drives will be faster in synthetic benchmarks.

    To the normal user it will feel similar though.

    Your 4K writes look slow to me (at least compared to a more modern SSD like the M4)... I think this would make a big difference in the general feeling of 'zippness' and bootup (I'd read that 4/8K writes are important when booting)... it may be that your drive just needs to be securely wiped in order to restore performance - but i've only recently got into the SSD game, so someone else will know much more about that than me.

    Englishcoder is right, 4K write should be higher.
    OCZ Vertex 120GB v1.10 MLC SSD Review - CrystalDiskMark v2.2 - Legit Reviews

    Small correction though, 4K writes don't really affect booting. They do affect things like installation, file copies and multi-tasking.

    The lower 4K write performance might be caused by mis alignment, write caching, wrong AHCI setting or chipset problems.
