    Samsun PM830 SSD really,really slow

    Installed on an HP6910p laptop. BIOS SATA mode is set to native (which should activate AHCI).

    Samsung Magician Identifies it as a PM830 but says "not supported" reporting the serial number as S0TYNYABC21199? And it says AHCI is not active?

    Samsung Magician benchmark (when I found out how to drive it) says the performance isn't too bad:

    saying it was good for 276 MB/s read speed.

    But Crystal Disk Mark shows a more interesting result:

    The HP support website does not list any drivers for windows 10 and, since your laptop speed is capped at SATA 1 (150 MBps) speeds, I doubt you will ever obtain anything better than what you already have; however, this post might be an interesting read for you but it does not apply to windows 10:

    Good luck,
