I recently upgraded my ultrabook to have a 128GB SSD (Crucial v4).
The speed of installing ubuntu was shockingly slow, worst i've ever experienced. Once installed i did some testing and the speeds show as being good and boot time is alright but when it comes to installing anything it is taking an absolute age.
Using apt-get is fine downloading, again when it comes to unpacking things go extremely slow (Took 10 minutes to install Terminator). Running firefox is becoming a burden as well.
$ sudo hdparm -Tt /dev/sda /dev/sda: Timing cached reads: 12428 MB in 2.00 seconds = 6218.55 MB/sec Timing buffered disk reads: 718 MB in 3.01 seconds = 238.78 MB/sec
- Intel i5-3317U
- 4GB RAM
- 128gb Crucial v4 SSD
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
