In our final real world tests for this review we look at the load times achieved by the drives in two common scenarios, the first is the time taken to boot to a responsive Windows 8 desktop. For this the time recorded is from the "Windows Starting" screen appearing to the stage when out pointer becomes active on the desktop. The second test is the time taken from launching a Skyrim save to seeing the game interface.

Given the results so far in this review the final tests give us no surprises. The excellent read speed of the M5M allows it to exceed its mSATA competition and perform at the same level as desktop equivalents.
