Question slow SSD read/write speeds


I recently purchased an A-Data S592 32GB SSD and installed it in an Acer Aspire One model 751H. 2GB of DDR2 and support for Sata II. The read/write speeds claim the drive can do 250/190 but when I run benching software such as HD Tune or CrystalMark, I get speeds along the lines of 52/50. These are incredibly slow speeds and are slower than many hard drives. I updated the Phoenix bios, flashed the drive firmware to the latest on their site, turned off all features that shouldn't be running on the OS,made sure TRIM was active, and have a fresh install of Windows 7 Home Premium on the drive but the speed remains the same. The drive is also aligned and works well, except for the slow speeds. I'm at my wits end here and have run out of ideas to fix this. A-data doesn't seem too keen in responding to emails. Any help to fix this issue would be greatly appreciated.
