comment SSD, AHCI and write performance
The model is Kingston SV200S3128G. I've edited the question, so other people will see it upfront. TRIM is enabled and the partition is correctly aligned.

It's easy to instruct Windows 7 to use AHCI instead of ATA. See ithinkdiff.com/…;. Reinstalling Windows is by no means an easy way.

@aseq: we're using W7, which supports TRIM OOB. Again, I would have expected that issuing TRIM and enabling AHCI post-install will fix the performance issue. I want to avoid reinstalling Windows, if possible (it also looks an odd operation).

They are Kingston (I'll lookup their model in the morning, when I'll be in the office). However, as I've said, it seems the performance is ok once we erase them and reinstall Windows with AHCI enabled upfront. This is what puzzles me.
