Just installed a 510 SSD and it runs very slow (file load about 1MB / sec)
Asus Stryker Extreme MB
nVidia SATA controller 3.0 GB
Intel Q6700 CPU
latest drivers intstalled for everything
Performance is poor - a 297MB Excel 2010 file takes 3 minutes and 15 seconds to load. I was expecting 5 to 10 times better performance. Current performance is not any better than on my Centrino dual core laptop with a 5.400 RPM disk drive.
Also, after installing the Intel SSD Toolbox, whenever I run it, it won't let me do anything. It correctly identifies the installed drive , but when I click on the drive, it performs a refresh and won't let me select any of the buttons, such as "View drive information", "Check SMART Attributes", etc.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
