So I purchased a Kingston Hyper X 3K from Amazon on sale a couple days ago for 65$. It arrived and I installed it, everything fine and can tell the huge difference from spinning drive. I downloaded BlackMagic to test speeds and it's writing at 170mb/s and reads at 440mb/s. Why is the write not as fast? Is it my 13" MBP late 2011 not being able to handle those speeds or is it the SSD. I saw that the SSD is rated 500/500. I know write should prob be slower, but that's a big difference from Read/Write.

QUOTE Thanks
