    I've successfully installed a Crucial M4 SSD into my 2011 MBP and I'd like to benchmark it to see how it is performing. What programs are you guys installing to do this.

    For some reason, XBench gets stuck after doing the Thread Test Computation and then doesn't finish.:confused:

    Same here, but without the SSD. I have a SATA drive and Xbench get's stuck at the same place as you all.

    Hey,

    I know this is an old thread but I just downloaded Blackmagic Disk Speed Test and I'm wondering what a good test result is. Is the following typical of the drive: Write: ~260MB/s , Read: ~264MB/s?

    I have the samsung 256GB in the 2011 Airs.

    Thanks!
