What is the best way to test/benchmark an SSD to make sure it's doing it's job. I invested in an SSD, have my OS on it, want to make sure I am getting my money's worth.
I have heard some people making claims along the lines of: "I've had my SSD for X months and my read/write speeds have dropped Y%'.
What is the best way to test for things like that (and what are good numbers to look for)?
For reference I have a Samsung 830 128gb.
