    Default Kingston SSDNOW V200 Is Having Serious Performance Problems

    Just installed my kingston ssd and love it so far. Booting into w7 used to be 1 minute and 35 seconds. Now I boot into w7 around 38 seconds. My question is WEI is giving me a rating of 5.9 for "Disk data transfrer rate," does that sound right or is something wrong? I know my SSD isn't that fast but its giving me the same rating when I had my 5400rpm HDD installed.

    If you click "View and print detailed performance and system information", do you get a remark like the following?
    "Your system disk may be capable of scoring higher than 5.9. However, the test to determine this requires 1GB of contiguous free space. Try deleting unused files, then running the Disk Defragmenter before re-running the assessment."

    Have any questions about MPC-HC or the Combined Community Codec Pack? (click for web chat)
    For video playback: xy-vsfilter & CCCP (use the bundled version of MPC-HC)

    No in the note field mine said this "Caution: Based on the results of the WinSAT Disk assessment, your system drive may have slower response times under some workloads. Performance results will depend on the specific applications used and the amount of memory available. If your experience is satisfactory, no action is needed."

    Which drivers? Have you made sure that your SSD is aligned?

    Please install Intel RST latest version from Intel.com.

    If that didn't improve WEI then post a screen shot of AS-SSD without running the benchmark.

    For my own interest: will you post a CrystalDiskMark 3x100MB screenshot please?

    Hi Phil I installed the Intel RST latest version. But still get a 5.9 am I suppose to config anything in the RST program? Also what is AS-SSD, also I never used CrystalDiskMark, but I'll try.

    p.s I did go under the manage option in RST and it showing this information. So I know its on sata III.

    System disk: Yes
    Password protect: No
    Disk data cache: Enabled
    Native command queuing: Yes
    SATA transfer rate: 6 Gb/s
    Physical sector size: 512 Bytes
    Logical sector size: 512 Bytes

    No need to configure RST.

    AS-SSD can be downloaded here: http://alex-is.de/PHP/fusion/downloa...id=4&file_id=9

    CDM: here CrystalDiskMark3_0_1b.zip??????? - CrystalDiskMark - SourceForge.JP

    I suggest not to run AS-SSD, instead just post a screenshot.

    OK. By the way, is this a clean install or a cloned one?
