http://askubuntu.com – I just installed a new Intel 330 60 GB SSD into my HP Mini 2140 laptop. But it's not going as fast as expected and my hdparm results aren't looking very good compared to SSD benchmarks at: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/SSD_Benchmarking My results and info are below. hdparm results: justin@justin-HP-2140:~$ sudo hdparm -Tt /dev/sda /dev/sda: Timing cached reads: 1130 MB in 2.00 seconds = 564.50 MB/sec Timing buffered disk reads: 372 MB in 3.01 seconds = 123.53 MB/sec justin@justin-HP-2140:~$ hdparm info: justin@justin-HP-2140:~$ sudo hdparm -I /d (HowTos)
