It's defaulting to SATA1 speeds for some reason but you'd have to contact the SSD manufacturer. Probably has something to do with Windows 8 not having the proper drivers for the MacBook hardware.

150MB/second is pretty fast so if things feel slow there may be something else going on besides the SSD. I'm just not familiar with putting W8 on a MacBook and what that means for driver support.

The win is in the near zero access time and the 'much quicker than a HDD' random file speeds. Unless your do something heavy using sequential file transfers then those speeds are only 'eye candy' to lure you in.

No, benchmarking is real enough, its just advertising like to tout the best and make it seem important when in truth most users don't often transfer large sequential files to make use of those top speeds.

If you think about it, if everything could transfer at top speeds - even at 150MB/s windows would load in what? 1/25 of a second.
