good morning, good evening or good afternoon my first post here, in all honesty, this question is at the top of my list at the moment so i'll jump right to it: a couple days ago i got the hyperx 120gb sata3 ssd by kingston, for my early 2011 macbook pro. i installed the drive, formatted and what not, installed a fresh copy of Lion 10.7.2 from a thumb drive i made. got round to installing all the apps and things i use, and afterwards i said to myself, "hey, let's see if this thing kicks major a*&". the box says it goes upward of 500mb/s for both read and write (in special conditions, albeit). right so i installed the free disk speed utility app from the app store. before that (and much more before that, like weeks) i had seen this guy with the exact same drive do the test, and both needles rocketed upward of 450mb/s for both read and write. anyway, long story short, mine goes 160mb/s (maximum, and it looks as if something is limiting it to that speed) and upward of 450mb/s for read. why? how? can anyone help? nb: i know, i had read the other thread a dozen times but i still haven't been enlightened.. sorry for double posting!
