    doesn't seem up to par as what the box says. suppose to be 285write/275read.
    Or maybe im understanding the bench incorrectly.

    Xbench is old and inconsistent. I think that says it all.

    out of interest, what version of the MBP do you have? Thinking about getting one of these drives myself, but have been worried about lock ups etc.

    i5 2.4, 15"


    so what's good? what should I use to bench?

    i tried to bench it in bootcamp on hdtunepro...it showed slower speeds than kingston's, so now I'm interested to know how it's performing in osx.

    If your trying to bench, I would say Geekbench is your best bet. They offer a 32bit and 64bit version. I believe the 32bit is free, and the 64 bit is like $10?

    64bit would be worth it IMO especially if you plan to go to 8GB of RAM, you want the test to really test all of it and form my understanding... it wont with the 32 bit version.

    I'm getting way higher then those numbers using the Apple SSD 128gb. Might want to check out another program for benching. The only thing that is faster is Random small read/writes

    For comparison, this is what I am getting on XBench with my Mac Pro running a 120GB OWC Mercury Extreme Pro SSD:

    Here's mine. Seems to be in line with y'alls. Perhaps we should all try a different benching system!

    I wonder if the OWC Mercury Extreme Pro is a faster drive or if my benchmarks are just better because I am running a faster system. I hear both the Vertex 2 and the Mercury Extreme Pro are the best drives on the market right now.

    Intel is supposed to have a next generation drive out soon which is much faster, though.

    Supposedly, the OWC Mercury Extreme Pro is supposed to get up to 285MB/sec read and write speed. But I am not seeing anything anywhere near that on my Mac Pro.

    Intel's have lower sequential write speeds compared to other drives. They make it up by being very good at random writes though, so for day to day stuff, you can't really feel a difference.

    Thanks for the clarity. I was freaking out for a minute thinking there was something wrong with my drive.:)

    Looks like $19.95 for the 64 bit version:

    That's a tough sell.

    cheers
