Extremely slow 1mb/s write speed on PNY xlr8 240gb SSD

hi all, having a major issue with my SSD, all of a sudden it has terrible write speeds of only 1.5mb/s - I noticed a real slow down on PC, narrowed it down to SSD. Tested with various things, although read speed is ok, the write speed is atrocious. Tried it on both SATA 2 and 3 controllers and is the same, I have tried to delete it and clean using diskpart, recovery from image is taking 15 hours to write 139gb image in acronis, sure it should only take a couple of hours. Any help or advice appreciated please.

Sounds like an issue for PNY support. I hope it's under warranty.

Have you tried new cabling? I assume you've tried all possible ports?

Hiya, yeah tried just about everything, Read is as expected - write is coming in at 2.3Mb/s on the MSAHCI drivers as opposed to my NVIDIA ones, just realised how big the writing was in first post, sorry for that

Have sent a support ticket off, thanks for that advice, box says 3 years warranty - which is good, had it around a year at most

Extremely slow boot speed
The speed used to be optimal, but in the past weeks it increased up to 4 minutes which is insane. I disabled most of non microsoft services and startup programs but it does not decrease at all. If you need any further logs/info feel free to ask. Thank you - Tom
