Imho, according to userbenchmark nomenclature it not that bad at 21stpercentile and 95.1%Outstanding mark. I think userbenchmark's benchmark can be affected by such things as overall system scores (notebook vs power PC), background activity, storage driver, power saving options...

Why do you think your drive is very slow? What is your motherboard model? Could you post other benchmark results? Benchmark the drive with AS SSD Benchmark and post the results with 'Edit > Copy' option.

Thanks. I think I misinterpreted the information I got from Userbenchmark. I'm getting better results now.
