Well, er, now that you point it out ... I was looking more at their purported result rather than their test regime ;) Lazy me, having had a background in testing stuff. Oh well.

The websites themselves might be reliable, but some of the reviewers might be freelancers.
They will review anything to earn money. They might mean well but...
That reviewer might be an avid Itunes user and to him it is real life usage, just not to many others.
Installing software requires cpu usage, storage read/write, ram, and A/V interaction
If your bench-marking an SSD you should just move data, of various sizes, from 1 to 2 or 1 to 1 to see speeds.
OS loading tests depend on how many apps are installed and how many are allowed to load at start up, again not a good test.
Also, If you save 0.5ms on a 5ms task it is not impressive, but if you save 10sec on a 100sec task that isn't bad.
They are both 10%
