SSD Upgrade - followed by surprisingly bad write speed
Upgraded my completely new MBA 2017 to ADATA SX8200 480GB, using the (short black) Sintech adapter.
Upgrade went smooth, installed Mojave including ™ backup, with reported PCIe 2.0 4x speed, 5 GT from system report.
No kernel paniks, no problem with stand by, and actully a very nice system stand by time.. Coconut Batt reports more than 11 hours battery time on a full charge.
I did not use Kapton tape, as the adapter seemed factory shielded on that particular side.
But alas.. even though everything seems good, and I’ve got terrific sequential speeds, something seems pretty wrong with (in particular) 4K WRITE speeds. Dont this seem way too low..??! o_O
