    Below is a link to a simple and free benchmarking program called Xbench. If you are so inclined can you install it and post the results of the "Disk Test," section. I am curious your results. My results seem painfully slow and I am not sure if it is just my machine or a wide spread problem.

    My results:

    Sounds about right. That's about what I'm getting on my WD scorpio black, which should be about the same.

    Thanks Alust:

    I was concerned with all the SATA III issues with the 2011 MBP that maybe I had an issue. I know the Momentus XT is SATA II but was somewhat surprised by the low throughput numbers. Guess the 4g of flash has no benefit on the XT under a benchmarking test.

    Right, that test will only yield results of the 7200 RPM part of the drive.
