    I have a Rev B 1.86 SSD.

    Can someone else please use a watch and post your times?

    BEFORE the 1.1 firmware update

    10 seconds from power button to apple logo - 17 more seconds to load to my desktop = 27 seconds

    After 1.1 update

    45 seconds from power button to apple logo - 15 more to load my desktop = 60 seconds

    I just used a stopwatch 2 times - same results....

    UPDATE: tried SMC Reset - same result.

    After firmware updates on SSD :apple: appears at 17 seconds, another 19 seconds to get to desktop.

    Do you have new start-up items or 'extensions' installed?

    No Offense, but I really don't check to see how fast it opens.

    No - the MBA is identical in terms of software from the before and after video. Only Logic 8 and PhotoShop installed. Nothing is set to auto start.

    IRONIC: it's not so much about 'o no now it is slow' etc ... I am wondering why before the update it was 10 seconds to get to the apple logo - and after the update it is 45 seconds to get there...

    Seems like it is running some kind of memory check or something?

    **problem Solved**

    **PROBLEM SOLVED**

    Called AppleCare for the first time ever - got a nice fellow named Andrew and explained the before and after.

    He said hold COMMAND/OPTION/R/P and then keep them down while pressing power - and voila - the machine restarted 3 times - and now it is back to normal.
