    Hi,
    I just bought a new Kingston snvp325-s2 and its really fast, but only after startup. It takes just under two minutes for the thing to startup and shutdown is about 45 seconds. Now my stock 5400 mac HD was faster... But I have to say the Read/Write times are fine and apps open in a second. Anyone have an idea of whats going on?

    And its formatted to Mac OS Extended (Journaled) as well as set to the startup disk if that helps

    You could try booting into verbose mode to see what it's doing. Reboot, then hold down Cmd-V when the screen first turns grey. Release it when your screen turns black and shows the UNIX boot sequence. It should tell you where the hang-up is.

    try these

    go to preferences and select it as a startup disc

    reset smc

    those should do it.

    it was already set as the startup disk and I took smc off as a login item. That startup is now at 55 seconds so I guess that's not too bad. But why do I see posts that claim 20 second start ups or 30 seconds even? I'm running double that...
