    Wow! It's already filled up 77%. What have you got there? You didn't do a clean install, did you?
    Anyway try the tweaks found here: the-ssd-optimization-guide, except for System restore that I wouldn't disable.

    your SSD is rated for SATA 3 speeds for read up to 500mb/s but the G73JW is sata 2 and will only read at SATA 2 speeds. the performance you are seeing is correct

    Even the 4K read/write @ 12.7 & 2.7?
