Was initially very fast. My best bench was 255%, but it clocked a minimum of 240% with ease. A year of constant use later and it's struggling to crack 200%. The drive hasn't been abused, it's my boot and software drive. The laptop doesn't feel any slower or more sluggish during use, but I have noticed the UBM scores dropping significantly. There's a reason why the Samsungs cost £100 or more than the MP510. This isn't a bad SSD, but I expected better.
