Compared to what? But yes, that's nice and fast for a laptop SSD. To get higher than that you need a raid-0 setup with multiple drives.

Not compared to anything you now, just generally, but thanks for the answer.

Looks like a first gen rmbp 256gb. Haswell version will be more than 700.

Late 2013" 13 rMBP. Was surprised at the speed considering that it's only 256GB. Comparable to the 512GB speed.

Crucial M4 + 2010 13"

I think that is pretty much the max for SATAII speeds. I'm posting this because it is amazing to see how quickly SSD speeds have grown over what I personally feel is a relatively short amount of time.

Yes those speeds are very good. That is the SATA SSD that you have. Those are the expected speeds for that connector. If you go PCI Express SSD, you will get significant speed boosts around 700+ read/writes. All in all very good for todays use.

My write speed seems low in comparison to the rest posted up ...

Haswell rMBP 13 - 2.6 i5 / 128GB SSD :
Apple uses a bit slower SSD in the 128gig versions of the late 2013 rMBP.
Then again, 300 mb/s is already very fast. Probably for your uses, you wont notice the difference..

I got the same result for the same model.

Am I missing something in that I can't see or get to the bottom of the screen..

My external USB 3.0 Intel 520 series 180GB SSD hooked to my 15" rMBP. :D Not insane but hopefully I can have a RAID 0 SSD setup via Thunderbolt or an external PCIe SSD soon.

Nah, those speeds seem pretty slow to me.

Ah yeah! I remember those days...

Mac Mini with 1 TB fusion drive, and with TB attached Drobo.

The Drobo is the 124.6/234
Nice! What kind of Drobo?! I'm possibly getting the Drobo Mini for Christmas..
