I am getting low Windows Experience Index scores (5.9) with my new SSD and am trying understand what is going on.
I have the following setup.
Intel 120GB 520 Series SSD
Asus P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3
Windows 7 (all updates installed)
Latest SSD Firm ware installed
The drive is connected to the Intel Z68 Serial ATA 6.0Gb/s connector in AHCI mode
I have tried the Intel SSD Toolbox optimizer
Here is the output from "winsat disk" command, why do I get the 1.9's?

Why are you using the "-hybrid" option? Is your 520 part of a SRT system, which would be impossible in AHCI mode, so I'm confused. I can't find anything about "-hybrid" at MS's site, but winsat recognizes that option. Winsat won't accept it on my PC.
