    Very Slow SSD 530 240Gb on Mac Mini 2010

    kiresp

      Why is this device so slow ?

      I am extremely disappointed with this SSD.

      Apart from the issue with the unable to reboot (device not detected on reboot)

      it's very slow, I can't believe it, something is wrong !

      I was hoping for a performance boost, this is ridiculous.
