    Hey everyone, just noticing (another) odd behavior on my new iMac and not sure if it's related to hardware or Mavericks. I have a lot of little Mavericks related bugs but since I've never had a 3TB Fusion drive I thought I'd ask.

    My last iMac was a late-2012 model with a 1TB Fusion and I never noticed this just for some reference.

    So anyways, I've noticed that saving files takes a while (or seemingly does anyways). When I save even a small PDF or text document from Text Editor to the desktop, or a screenshot via grab, it may take 5/6/7 seconds for the file to show up. I sit there waiting for it counting which is not right.

    Anyone else seen this or do you all think it's a Mavericks issue?

    Do you have a USB drive connected to the iMac

    I found a slow usb drive that needed some time to wake from sleep caused this behavior

    Nope, nothing external attached at all. Just set this machine up a few days ago so it's pretty fresh.

    I don't have a FD so not speaking from experience but I read that the FD does a 'sorting' behind the scenes to figure out what goes on the SSD portion and what goes on the HD portion. Maybe you're is going thought that? If it's a few days old and you haven't used it, it may be a possibility.

    Interesting, I'll need to read up on this some more and decide. It's very noticeable on this machine from what I'm seeing but my previous iMac with a 1TB Fusion Drive didn't have this issue at all.

    Was hoping it was Mavericks related, but maybe it's specific to the larger FD :(

    reinstall mavericks... or do a disk clean sweep.... or repair disk permissions and see if that helps?
