PNY XLR8 SSD Drive - Very slow benchmark

Hey everone,

I been using this drive for a month ish. I just bench marked today and noticed the performance is very slow. Then I was reading and I've changed my mobo sata settings to ACHI. I've also did the registry edit on windows to use ACHI. That improved the performance a bit but this is still the result.

As you can see from the picture, it is very slow.

What can I do from here?

  1. Do you experience problems in your system while using that SSD besides the benchmarks issues? What motherboard do you have?
  2. No, I don't experience any problems. I am just not sure, if it's fast as it should be or not. I'm running: GA-F2A55M-DS2.

    I just realized on their website description, "8 USB 2.0 and 4 SATA2 ports with RAID 0,1,10 support". I think the problem might be because it's using SATA2, instead of SATA3, that's why it's not performing at full speed. What do you think?
