As stated in the subject... Can't believe it's slower than a USB2 thumb drive =(
It started out fine (400+MB/s) then it slowed to a crawl...
(in case you're wondering, that is a genuine windows 8 rtm iso downloaded from my school's ELMS)
Forgot to say, but this is a new drive just installed 1 week ago. Came with the latest firmware 000F
Solved! Go to Solution.

Also forgot to say, I partitioned my SSD into 2 drives, C: and D:
Both partitions are aligned...

Turn off drive compression on the D drive.

I don't really know. The results are odd because AS SSD uses incompressible data. It shouldn't be affected by drive compression - but it does seem to be drastically whenever anyone uses it. So I would guess it is an illusion that the differnce is that drastic.
But the idea shown in the benchmark is right. Writes will be slower, reads will be faster BUT both tasks will require more CPU time so its not as simple as thinking 'well, I prefer my reads faster anyway'
