aren't far off from your, but higher minimums. Are you running AHCI?
AHCI is enabled in bios. I believe I have TRIM enabled as well.

I just don't know what's going on. Am I missing some secret switch to get the full performance out of my SSD?

Seems like SSDs usually have more consistent performance than that. How about leaving it sit a while and then reboot and try benching again?

I honestly don't know. Mine was super easy to set up..

-Enabled AHCI in bios
-disabled indexing (personal pref. if you disable it across all folders, I did as it's only a gaming/browsing rig)
-disabled search
-verified TRIM was enabled

iirc that's all I had to do.

Sometimes after intense usage performance on a SSD will drop to a level pretty close to what you're getting as minimums (150 MB/s). But after garbage collection/the trim command has been run it usually will bounce back up to the usual speed. That's why I say leave it idle a while and reboot.

Just ran 2.55 hdtune to check mine. MS security essentials is a huge hit in performance with mine.

Here is with it disabled.


With it enabled my minimum was about 70Mb/sec and had an average of about 130. Should have taken a pic.

This current shot had FF and paint open.

Thanks, I'll try that later too as mine is benching a good bit slower than when I first installed it.

I didn't realize that SSD's are such complicated animals. It seems like they have a temperament. It seriously sounds like it just does what it feels like doing.

Sorta cool, but sorta scary. lol

Even at their worst they still kick the bejeezus out of conventional harddrives.

Ahhh now that makes sense. I've been using MS security essentials too.

Tempted to see what AntiVir is like again these days.

Why is it all the premium pricey anti-virus I have ever bought always bog down your system with worthless crap.

Surely there has to be a happy medium somewhere?

Folks just trying to squeeze every MB of performance out of it, that's all part of the fun.

Exactly.

My system still starts up in half the time it would take for me to get a glass of water, and shuts down before I can even get up from my chair. Still, just like CPUs and GPUs, you want to have the very best performance from your parts. When it doesn't hit that point, you have to wonder what's going on.

I'm going to leave my computer on overnight. Hopefully, TRIM will clean up some of the garbage off my SSD and speed it back up.
