Hi, im just curious and worried if my WD black caviar is running at normal speeds. It says on their website that there is a potential write speed of 150 MB/s but according to Defraggler, my transfer speeds are at 1.75 MB/s. is this normal???
 
EDIT:My HD TUNE benchmark results. I think there is something definately wrong here. It is dipping so low :(

Anyone else have this HD, care to share results?

It depends on what kind of files you are transferring and to where.

 

A lot of little files will be a lot slower than a single large file. It also depends if the file is fragmented a lot or not.

If you are transferring files to a USB stick, most of the times, the USB stick will be the limiting factor.
