Where's the 'incredible" SSD speed increase I was led to believe would happen?
As the topic says, Where's the 'incredible" SSD speed increase I was led to believe would happen?
I replaced the original 160GB MDD 5400 RPM drive in my mid-2007 2.2 GHz 15" MBPro with 4 GB RAM, OS X 10.6.8 with a new OCZ 2.5" Veritex 3 SSD, partitioned and formatted it and cloned back all it's OS and user data from the original HDD.
'Blackmagic Disk Speed Test' says the new SSD has about a 5x R/W speed improvement but I'm not seeing that with normal apps.
Nor can I see any speed improvement when launching apps etc. and nothing is really any faster than it was and with any comparisons I did between the MBPro and my mid-2007 24" iMac, also running with 4GB RAM and OS X 10.6.8 either before the swap or after.
The only thing faster is that the MBPro can now boot up faster saving me some 30 seconds max which is not exactly a life time outstanding time saving feature for my use.
Bottom line, I have NOT experienced any faster user application use experience with the new SSD that I've used for a day or so now.
Not too overly impressed, but maybe the new SSD has other advantages??
