    Hi, I hava a 13" MBP i7 2.7 ghz (early 2011). Just installed new SSD and was expecting better results. Manufacturer states 500 / 500 albeit I suspect this would never be achieved in reality.

    Any suggestions on how to get better speeds?

    I am running Lion, and did a clean install. drive format HFS+ Journaled.

    The benchmark tool used is Disk Speed Test from the app store.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    thanks

    Rob

    I'm getting the same exact crap on a 2010 macbook pro with a Corsair force 3 SSD (sata 3 6gb/s). My xbench scores are hovering around 280, How bout yours?

    SSDs really strut their stuff on random read/writes, not sustained.

    the new version of the software is giving total bogus results, try AJA

    before the update I was getting over 400MBs and now I am getting what your saying, on AJA I am still getting over 400MBs

    Do you guys care more about raw numbers or actual performance? Most SSD's won't touch those theoretical rates and even if their transfer rates are less than a spinning drive do keep in mind they have allot more going for them in terms of speed over a spinning platter.

    OCZ's drives approach their theoretical max quite often.

    Do you guys have the drives in the optical bay?

    No, my corsair force 3 is in the primary bay. I'm happy to see that I am not alone. Aside from the synthetic benchmarks, my system boots up in 17 seconds , and most apps launch in one bounce.

    Those who upgraded to Lion can't use AJA, it tries to write to the root folder of the hard drive which is no longer supported in Lion due to security reasons. We'll have to wait for them to upgrade it.
