    I installed a 180GB Intel SSD about 2 months ago and at first everything was great - very fast, etc. However, over time anything dealing directly with files (such as attaching a file in email, opening desktop folders, etc.) seems to be getting slower and slower. I get the rainbow icon often now whereas before it was quite rare. Has anyone else seen this problem? And if so, is there something that can be done (other than reverting to a rotating hard drive)?

    Downloading huge files and then deleting them, and doing this repeatedly, will cause some SSD slowdown.

    If you back-up your data with Time Machine, and fresh install snow leopard again, and restore, you'll drive will be fast again... happened to me.
