So I just got my X25 E G2 in from new egg. I put it in an external enclosure and formated it. Then I used CCC to clone the HD in my mac and transfer it to the SSD. After it was done I shut the Mac down and put the SSD in.... It comes on and is all grey like it usually is, only NO apple logo and NO swirly status icon. It stays grey for approx 32 seconds THEN the appl logo and swirly status icon shows up for another 10-12 seconds. That seems about as fast as the stock 5400 RPM drive. Then I went to open Firefox and it took 2 bounces to open. Now I wasnt expecting everything to be instant but is 42-44 seconds to boot to the desktop and 2 bounces of Firefox normal? I shut it down and restarted it 3 times and the symptoms are the same each time. the only thing that is fast is shut down. by the time the mouse button is back to the up position after you click "shut down" this thing is off. Time to DL a bench test program... anyone know what kind of numbers I should see after I get a bench test prog?
