In the HD Tach testing the Pyro SE drives deliver performance just under that of the OCZ Vertex 3 in the average read test. The burst speeds, CPU usage, and access time are a wash. Putting that in perspective means that the 120 and 240GB drive can perform at the top end of the spectrum of the drives I have tested so far. In both tests the 120GB Pyro SE outperforms the rest of the 120GB comparison drives.
