    I bought my MBP right before the processor refresh to the 2.4 or 2.5's, so I have a 2.2 with a 120GB apple(intel) ssd.
    I did buy a 2nd SSD, Intel 320 series 120GB SATA II to put in place of the optical bay. I got the drive already but still waiting on the OWC data doubler and tools to get here. I also bought 8GB of OWC ram.

    some results using Blackmagic Disk Speed Test

    Before the installation of my optibay SSD:
    write: average 188 mb/s
    read: average 210 mb/s

    Heres some XBench info:

    Xbench Version 1.3
    System Version 10.7.2 (11C74)
    Physical RAM 4096 MB
    Model MacBookPro8,2
    Drive Type APPLE SSD TS128C
    Disk Test 324.82
    Sequential 215.37
    Uncached Write 316.61 194.39 MB/sec [4K blocks]
    Uncached Write 276.73 156.57 MB/sec [256K blocks]
    Uncached Read 109.13 31.94 MB/sec [4K blocks]
    Uncached Read 379.27 190.62 MB/sec [256K blocks]
    Random 660.41
    Uncached Write 429.52 45.47 MB/sec [4K blocks]
    Uncached Write 642.81 205.79 MB/sec [256K blocks]
    Uncached Read 2242.00 15.89 MB/sec [4K blocks]
    Uncached Read 579.05 107.45 MB/sec [256K blocks]

    can someone compare or tell me if those are good read/write speeds, but im pretty sure it should be faster and some reviews on the app weren't that great saying "it slowed down after the update"

    heres some more info:
    Intel 6 Series Chipset:

    Vendor: Intel
    Product: 6 Series Chipset
    Link Speed: 6 Gigabit
    Negotiated Link Speed: 3 Gigabit
    Description: AHCI Version 1.30 Supported

    Also a geekbench score of 10559 before the upgrade

    I will post the results after the upgrade, hopefully by 01 Jan 2012. I look forward to your feedback :cool:
