  1. nevermind...found that on Google..is 113MB/s
  2. WD's official spec sheet says 113MB/sec. Note however, that this is the maximum transfer rate, not the average. The speed will range from that rate at the outermost tracks to perhaps about 60MB/sec when the heads are positioned at the innermost tracks.
