SSD speed after Windows 7 reinstall

I have Intel 330 Series 120GB SSD, and after i reinstalled Windows 7, because of some damn driver, I feel that my SSD has gone slower.
I didn't do any Bootracer tests before Windows 7 reinstall, but now Bootracer 4 says:
Time to Logon 18 seconds
Time to Desktop 47 seconds
And yes, i have AHCI set up in BIOS.

I have seriously no idea what is wrong.

  1. Is your SSD full? if not there's nothing to worry about because it probably talking 47 seconds from turning off and on again instead of boot from the press of button... I highly recommend you to do a test and see if it manages at least 200MB/s+
  2. Did you disconnect your other HDD before reinstalling?

    I have used about 40 gigs of my SSD. What would be a good app to test speed?

    Hello, here are the results: http://twitpic.com/c2je7u
  7. I think it's natural...
  8. I'm thinking the drive wasn't secure erased (zero'd) and now you need time for trim and garbage collection to kick in.

    That could be the issue. How can I prevent it, if I reinstall Win 7 again, or should I take the ssd back to retailer for exchange?
  10. Have you tried a secure erase before reinstalling? I always do a secure erase and long format for just in-case reasons of a slowdown or something.
