After installing the Mushkin Enhanced Callisto Deluxe 240GB SSD drive, I felt its performance was a bit sluggish so I ran some speed tests. I used XBench.app but because that app is older than dirt, the results were a bit misleading. A Mushkin rep suggested AJA System Test because it’s specifically geared toward testing read/write speeds on drives. One cool feature is that you can test external drives, including USB memory sticks.
Anyway, here’s the screenshot showing the read/write speeds. Indeed, 182.1 MB/s write is crappy for the Mushkin SSD, especially with the advertised speed of 275 MB/s. The 235.7 MB/s read is pretty nice.
