Sad Need help getting better speeds (MP500)

It just seems like the speeds are dropping day after day, according to benchmarks.

Can anyone tell me what's wrong? I can tell you that write caching IS enabled, and so is TRIM.

The temps get up to 76 c when running the benchmarks. Usually idles around 70c.

Would removing it and putting it back do anything? Otherwise I might have to replace it or something. I hate seeing the "Performing way below expectations" on userbenchmarks.


So after days of trying to figure out what's wrong. I decided to try ATTO Disk Benchmark. This benchmark completely negated what the others were saying. In fact it's crazy. And it's not false either, since I had open task manager and was looking at the speeds through there at the same time.

Did you try blackmagic disk speed test for windows (or mac?).
I get awful results with this app for my MP500's...
Didn't try ATTO, yet
