So I got a Kingston SSD Now 200 V+ 60 GB SSD and installed OS 10.6.8 onto it. I enabled trim and ran black magic design's disk speed test and it gave the SSD 75 MB/s write 180 MB/s read. While I'm perfectly happy with the read speed (my MBP boots in under 10 seconds) I was hoping to get better write speeds especially considering my regular HDD got 85 MB/s write. Is there anything I might need to configure differently to get better write speeds? The drive is advertised as 280 MB/s read 230 MB/s write for SATA II, and I know you don't usually get advertised speeds but even 100 MB/s would be a good enough improvement. My Macbook Pro: 13" mid 2010 2.4 Ghz Core 2 Duo 8 GB ram Nvidia Geforce 320M 256 MB SATA II disk interface. I know theres a firmware update for this drive, but I assume it would already be installed? I'll have to get access to a PC to run their firmware update tool and see. Will post an update when I do that, in the mean time any other suggestions would be appreciated.
