    anyone else noticed that the SSD speed would drop significantly after some days' usage. when i wiped the hard drive and did a fresh install, the write speed is like 400 to 500, but after like a week or so, it would drop to like 100 sometimes even below that. read speed is fast as usual
    bought two MacBooks, and did like 4 installations, all have the same problem.
    anyone brother to test their speed again for me? many thanks.

    FileVault might be encrypting (if you have it enabled) or Spotlight might be indexing. Give it some time.

    i tried both FV2 enabled and disabled. same situation.
    also i've let it set there for more than a week, encryption should be done long before.
