Slow SSD speed? 2011 iMac

Hi,

I have the SSD that came with my 2011 iMac. Can't help but think the read / write speeds are slow? Can someone compare to their own default SSDs? Thanks! Any feedback appreciated.

Same here

I recently installed a Mushkin Chronos 120gb SSD in my 2011 IMac I5 and I'm getting bad results also.( Read 91.9 - Write 133.6) . But in my 2011 Mac Mini with a a 128gb OCZ Vertex 4 SSD I'm getting Read 248.9 and Write 453.7. I thought maybe it was the Mushkin that wasn't a good drive.

Yes, that seems very poor as well. Could it be that the drives are using SATA 2? How does one see if the drive is using sata 2 vs sata 3?

Ref this case:

Reasonable results given the SSD that's in your computer, which is what was used in prior Airs.
