Not sure if this is really slow? Take a look at this picture
Thats about right for a 320 on SATA II speeds
That's about half the speed I get on mine.
Im no expert on how SSDs and disk tests work, but I get 45.4MB/s and 180.6 MB/s using the same test on my 40GB intel 320... I'm supposed to get 45/200 MB/s whereas the 160GB is supposed to get up to 165/270 MB/s so id be a little worried. source:http://www.anandtech.com/show/4244/intel-ssd-320-review
show me your speed result please
Are you SURE about that???
Will do later tonight when I get back from the cinema
Here it is.
Specs in sig
Edit: Do you have TRIM Enabled?
if not, go there: http://www.groths.org/?page_id=322
It's discussed somewhere in this forum.
After enabling TRIM, reset your mac in single user mode and run this command: "fsck -ffy" (Without quotes) it's going to trim the unused sector and maybe give you back your speed.
Thank you very much I have done what you suggested
no improved performance at all. I guess your sig is newer than my old mbp?
I have sata II as well, and my read speed is higher than yours even though my drive is speced for lower speeds, so I think something might be wrong with yours
You're using SATA I not SATA II and those speeds are correct for SATA I. (150MB/s max theoretical speed)
You're right, sata 1... Then he's geting normal speed for his setup.
I didn't think about that, I thought that even the first gen intel mac had sata II.
Oh well, you learn something new everyday!
And to the op, even if you are not getting full speed, just the access time of the SSD make it so much better than even the fastest HDD!
Yeah before HDD and after SSD not much improvement but I will save SSD for next MBP anyway.
The bottom line SSD gives me a new experience!
