I have AHCI enabled Trim enabled updated my BIOS from the website for my lenovo laptop Superfetch disabled, Prefetch and Superfetch set to 2 for boot indexing disabled defragmentation disabled chose "better performance" for removal policy etc etc
The speeds seem extremely slowly, I am trying to figure out if maybe the combination of the drive and enclosure may not be that good. I'm using it through a USB 3.0 port. I'm wondering if I should've maybe gotten an enclosure that can connect to an eSata port because I do have one on my laptop.
i am more than welcome to try other configurations if there are.

USB (even 3.0) isn't that fast, that might be the bottleneck. Those speeds seem normal for USB.
do you suggest I get an enclosure that works with eSata? i'm trying to think of better alternatives
