I have installed a Corsair Force 3 SSD drive and have tried the Xbench speed test. The speed is pretty much half what it should be by the looks.

How fast is everyones drives Force 3 drives.

Xbench speed test -

It is on a i5 Macbook pro 13" 2011
SATAIII 6GB Link speed.

Anyone else having slow SSD drives?

What are good numbers

just installed an Intel 330. feels really fast, which i suppose is the important part, but what are "good " numbers? im too much of a newbie to understand what Xbench is telling me.

When you use it, does it feel fast? Are you satisfied with the speed boosts, benchmarks aside?
