Since I got my new iMac last year I've always throught it felt a bit slow. Although I put up with it and eventually got used to it. Although I've just been looking into SSDs etc and noticed people are using a benchmark tool by Blackmagic design called Disk Speed Test (How apt..) Anyway, I'm only getting between 70MB/s and 80MB/s on read AND write. My old iMac used to get way higher than that, around 100MB/s on read and about 70MB/s on the write. That was a late 2006 24" model with a 500g WD hard drive. Is there anything I can do about this? The drive in my iMac is the WDC WD1001FALS-403AA0 and it's linked at 3gb/s. I'm sure I've had much higher performance out of 1t drives... Anyway, is there anything I can do about this short of getting a better drive/SSD? I know a few drives come with power saving, so they actually run slower to save power, run cooler and quieter. But I'd much rather have the performance than a quiet hard drive. Most hard drives these days are quiet anyway.
