    Hello,
    I just recently purchased the latest 13" baseline macbook pro, I went ahead and installed a kingston hyperx 3k 240GB SSD using superduper to clone my harddrive, everything seems to be running fine but I have a few weird things happening.

    1. Black Magic disk speed test says that my ssd is read only and cannot perform a test, does anyone know why its says this, or how to get it to run?

    I don't understand this as disk utility says the disk is read/writable and I can obviously copy files to it and such.

    2. When I try to test read/write speeds with AJA system test when I click start using the default settings nothing happens.

    Thanks.

    1. Go to Select Target Drive and choose your desktop. It should run.

    thanks!
    I got read speeds of 465MB/sec and write was 317MB/sec, seems really good.

    Does anyone have experience using the TRIM enabler with the Kingston SSD's?

    Thanks again

    BlackMagic won't work if you select the root dir on the drive for some reason. As for AJA I have never gotten it to work either. I clicked Start and it does nothing at all.
