But theoretically I should be getting 3 gbit/s on the tests, correct? *FYI, the drive is actually alot faster than my old drive. I just meant slow in comparison to the offered 6 gbit/s it sports More about : slow samsung 840 ssd warfront1 January 1, 2013 10:16:18 PM I was under the impression 200 mb/s was sata I speeds? m 0 l Dereck47 a c 523 G Storage January 1, 2013 10:37:27 PM warfront1 said:I was under the impression 200 mb/s was sata I speeds?

Also, you are comparing apples to oranges here with gigaBITS vs. megaBYTES. Looks like you are actually doing okay.
