    Hi guys,

    i'm turning towards you after having searched everywhere in the forums and on the web.

    I have just cleaned install Mavericks on a Kingston ssd v300 and i am getting sub-par performance.

    Read write performance are along the lines of 80\120mb\ sec and overall performance\responsiveness\boot time is not that impressive.

    The Macbook supports SATA II and the SSD is a SATA III.

    Here is what i have done so far.
    -Resetted NvRam and SMC
    -Trim Enabler is installed and working.
    -Macbook firmware is updated
    -SSD firmware is updated.
    -Maverick is up-to-date.

    p.s I have installed it yesterday and spotlight is not indexing.

    The Ssd was in my pc laptop before and i was getting really good performance with it.

    Thanks for your help in advance !

    best answer i've found yet ... this is very frustating


    it seems as you can get proper speed in mountain lion... is it still relevant and safe in 2015 ? could consider doing the switch if that doubled my speed...
