I have noticed problem with on BenQ DW1650: when doing a TRT, beyond the 2.5 Gig mark the transfer speed starts to drop. I’m almost sure this is a mainboard problem, cause the burst rate test shows only 17MB/s, what is pretty low, even for an IDE drive.
Then i did a busrt rate test on my SATA Samsung SH-203N, what is only 30MB/s.
My HDD transfer rates also seem to be suspiciosly low - for a SATA II drive.
I’m using a Gigabyte P35-DS3R board with the latest BIOS and Windows XP installed.
Do you have a suggestion what could be wrong ? I guess its not the cables, as the problem is present on every drive.
Thanks in advance for your help
