Here's the first drive. Not sure what's going on with the read speeds starting at 100 MBps and ending at 50.

Second drive. Finally something concrete. Do you know what C5 means for Caviar Blacks?

To make things even more confusing, the Western Digital Data LifeGuard Diagnostics tool passes that drive. It shows C5 as Current Pending Sector Count as well (200/200 as Value/Worst, but 0 for Threshold and 0 for "Warranty" column), but says both drives check out OK.

I am going to go ahead and zero both drives and see what the SMART data looks like on the other end.

Finished zeroing the first drive. Here's the details.

Granted the juicier details will come from the health data after the second drive.

Still disappointed with the speed test.

And now the second drive. Offline uncorrectable increase by 1, but the warning disappeared.

Think it's still good?

OCZ Vertex 2 120 GB SSD
Read tests for the Samsung Eco, which trounces the Caviar Blacks, and the Vertex 2, which really jumps around. Is it because it is the boot drive, or is something else at play with my SATA controller?

New Raid 0 Speed Test, 2x 640 GB WD Caviar Blacks
Better read results for the fresh RAID, but still low. Hey, at least it's more consistent across the entire test.

I wonder if having data on the other two drives affected the read test.
