Hey guys, this is my first post here so forgive me if it has a lot of mistakes, I'm new to Macs and upgrading components Today I fitted a 120GB OCZ Vertex 2, it has made a huge difference to the responsiveness, especially to Lightroom and CS5. I used Xbench to test the change from the standard 7200rpm 500GB HDD to the SSD. I'm interested if they are where they should be because I haven't changed any OSX settings to optimise for the SSD. System Info Xbench Version 1.3 System Version 10.6.5 (10H574) Physical RAM 4096 MB Model MacBookPro6,2 Drive Type OCZ-VERTEX2 500GB 7200rpm: Result 44.76 Sequential 93.84 Random 29.38 120GB Vertex 2: Disk Test 311.82 Sequential 186.34 Uncached Write 273.68 168.04 MB/sec [4K blocks] Uncached Write 266.81 150.96 MB/sec [256K blocks] Uncached Read 89.25 26.12 MB/sec [4K blocks] Uncached Read 349.71 175.76 MB/sec [256K blocks] Random 954.63 Uncached Write 1245.05 131.80 MB/sec [4K blocks] Uncached Write 509.49 163.11 MB/sec [256K blocks] Uncached Read 2920.45 20.70 MB/sec [4K blocks] Uncached Read 924.42 171.53 MB/sec [256K blocks] I hope someone finds this interesting, tomorrow I'm fitting 8GB of Ram and in the near future I'm fitting a Toshiba 750GB HDD to the optical bay for my Media (excluding photos which will stay on the SSD). Any opinions would be welcome EDIT: Also, despite being quicker in tasks it's boot time is still 54 sec, which seems high to me?
