    I have the Monster 240GB Sata III from Newegg, it states Read at 560 and Write at 520, I am getting roughly 400-450 Read and 300-350 Write speeds.

    I installed it about 4 weeks ago, and I have mainly just apps on the Mac side, and I have a 50GB Boot Camp with Win 7

    Works fine for me, but wondering if anyone is getting the speeds the MFG states, because I do not think I will ever see the 560/520 speeds

    The key word is up to. You will never see those speeds. I don't think anybody will.

    I agree! I have some SSD Benchmarks in my signature. Only the Samsung 840 has gone over 500 MBP/s.

    Interestingly, I don't think I've tested this computer yet…

    With Blackmagic speed test:

    I get about 600 write / 970 read with a Crucial M4 RAID setup.

    Gotta love marketing. The "up to" assumes perfect synthetic scenarios. It honestly doesn't matter much though, people get so caught up on read/write speeds but that's not what makes an SSD fast. It's the rapid access times that REALLY matter. That's what makes it 'fast'.

    Pretty much standard across the board for all rMBPs it seems.
