    Issue Resolved: Use AJA System Test for accurate results (post #3).

    The problem is that you are benchmarking with Black Magic on a drive that has a SandForce controller. They are incompatible.

    Use AJA System test for accurate results..

    Thanks! AJA System Test worked. Got the latest version from here http://www.aja.com/en/family/software which is compatible with Lion.

    Getting ~240MB/s R/W which is sufficient for me.

    On a side note, I have the AJA Kona LHe installed but not fully setup (AJA Software, Control Panel etc.) yet as I did a fresh copy of Lion on the SSD.
