  1. Slightly. The blue 500GB sounds like a normal spinning hdd and not an ssd. This means you won't get anywhere near the 300/600MBps that you would think you'd get by using SATA 2 or 3. I would still think however you should see more then 30MBps. Was this a lot of little files? Or off a really slow drive? Or maybe a copy from the same blue drive to itself?

    Nope, probably perfectly normal. Lots of small files from one mechanical drive to the same drive is probably around 30MBps.
