Slow write speed on laptop SSD as replacement for failed HDD

Specs: Windows 7, Intel i7 4770k, 32GB 1600MHz RAM
I just replaced my old failing HDD on my laptop with an SSD. The read speeds are amazing and it takes only a few seconds to boot and login. However anything that requires a lot of writing will be super slow. Transfer speeds when copying is constantly around 1.2MB/sec.

My laptop is an Acer Aspire 4810TZ running Windows 7 Home Premium x64.

The SSD is a Kingston (SSDNow) SV300 120GB.

I've checked that the SATA mode is set to AHCI in the BIOS and the SSD has the latest firmware installed. It has around 40% free space left.

Don't worry if plan A fails, there are 25 more letters in the alphabet ;)

Look at this guide, aside from covering Windows 7 install, it does a great job of optimizing it for SSD's:

More than just AHCI settings.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
