test for what you care about really, most people use SSD's for the
performance angle. I tend to prefer iozone over bonnie++ these days -
there are a host of other perf test tools that might be worth running
through, eg the mysql-bench or the pgsql perf test. Depends on what your
production workload is and what you care about
