your SSD is performing normally.. thats not slow... you are at 95.7% on par with others with that drive.. Ignore the warning message on there.. I would at least.. and if you do a benchmark thing like that turn off ANY and all stuff that does not need to run.. like your antivirus, firewall, etc..

Actually, it is comparing to other similar drives.

"A health score/percentile based on relative component performance (50% is normal)."
"A component achieves a status of 75% when it's faster than 75 out of 100 results for the same component. "

However...Obviously, not every drive will be at "100%"

If we assume 100 is perfect factory spec
And all drives tested were between 90 and 95% of that perfect ideal.
Some drive at 91% would still be really, really good right? Couldn't tell the difference.

But userbenchmark would list that at "20th percentile"
The bottom 20th of all drives tested. Even though it is actually running at 91% of perfect factory numbers.

Misleading status report.
