Does anyone else think the HDD benchmarks are wildly inaccurate? It seems that they must be very highly dependent on the system performance because the spread of similar drives (HDD vs SSD) and SSD drives using the same controllers (Sandforce, Indilinx, etx) is too much variance to be purely the device itself.

Does anyone really believe that an OCX Vertex3 is 50% better than the next best SSD, or the top 5 are 30% better than the next 5?

I would really like some context to benchmarks like this.
