    xBench really isn't that reliable. Although is there anything other than benchmarks that make it seem slow?

    So, other than benchmarks nothing seems slow about the SSD? (If I read your post correctly) Why not just use it then, if everything else is speedy? :confused:

    Sometimes getting caught up in the numbers is a curse! (That's when having too much knowledge hurts you :p)

    100%, but when you are paying a premium for an SSD, you want to make sure you get what you paid for

    Also, your scores are fine as far as xbench goes (as it really isn't that reliable). I installed a SSD in a friend's MacBook Pro and your scores are higher than theirs. But it really is a bad habit to get absorbed in things like this were you won't see a difference in the real world.
