    What do you want to know, the theoretical speed or the actual speed?

    The maximum theoretical speed should be show on the box (if it cam with one) or the online literature for your particular model. It may be expressed as x4 or x8, the conversion to Mb/s and MB/s is show here.

    If you want to know the actual speed, I suggest inserting a Blu-Ray disk, exploring it and copying one of the files onto your fastest HDD and make note of the maximum transfer speed.

    You can buy a disk that you put into your blu ray player that lets you calibrate your TV especially for blu ray, some of these also can tell you read speed.

    But with it being a PC drive, surely you can get a manufacturing spec sheet

    go into device manager, find the name of the drive and google it

    Everest Ultimate is excellent for this sort of thing as it will give you the exact model of the drive, firmware revision and all relevant read and write speeds for the drive(s).
