There have been a couple of benchmarking articles about the OWC product. Perhaps you should try searching for them on Google.
There are no benchmarking tools specific to SSDs, but there are disk drive benchmarking tools such as SpeedTools (commercial) and XBench (freeware) - VersionTracker or MacUpdate.
@ Kappy & Jim: Thank you both for your suggestions.
I found a great disk benchmarking utility by Intech Software called "SpeedTools Test Suite for Mac OS X". It's packaged with QuickBench, ZoneBench and Integrity applications. QuickBench is a disk drive performance evaluation tool which allows you to run standard, large, extended and custom tests of sequential reads and writes and random reads and writes. ZoneBench measures the read and write speeds over an entire local storage device such as logical volumes or physical drives and Integrity utility detects problems associated with disk firmware, data cable signal quality and overall data transferring reliability.
With these apps, I can run various tests and determine if my disks, SSD boot and HDD's raid stripe volume, is performing optimally.
