Just threw a SanDisk Extreme 240GB SSD in my Late 2012 iMac. Do these speeds look consistent to other SSD's? Seems to me that the write speed is substantially lower than advertised. :confused:

You running anything in the backround? Any apps open?

Those speeds look fine to me, but I think your wondering why it's not reaching 400. I have not seen any SSD reach that speed unless its a Samsung SSD 256GB+ 830/40 PRO.

Your speeds look fine -- better than "just fine", actually.

It's the read speed that counts for the most. Look at yours -- over 500.
