transfer speed is listed as "UP TO" 545 for read, not always or sustained of 545 - make sure you're using a SATA III port and the iRST drivers are enabled.

Yes but I am getting only almost half the speed mentioned. Also I have read many reviews and had seen videos about this particular SSD .it gives about average of 400 to 450 mb/s read speed but mine could not cross even 300 mb/s
