    Hi guys.
    Just got one of these drives and was wondering if i've got everything set up right. I've ran hd tach (without restarting) and got these figures. Sorry i can't upload any pics but i don't know how to :confused:

    Random access 13.3ms
    Average read 67.6MB/s
    Burst speed 134.6MB/s__________EDIT now with jumper removed 251.3MB/s. Thanks again Smids
    Any comments welcome.

    Regards

    Jobe

    I take it from your burst score you didn't remove the jumper on the hard drive which enables 300MB/s external transfer rate - other than that, looks very good, slightly faster than mine even!

    i did notice a jumper at the back but with it being an oem drive it didn't come with any bumpf. Should i remove the jumper then. :confused:

    If connected to a SATA-II port, then yes.

    It's not on any bumpf - it's on the label on top of the HDU :p.

    Was like a kid at christmas the day all my new kit arrived.
    Will check if it's sata 2 compatable and remove if necessary. Will my burst score double if it is.

    Yup. It might also make the drive about 2% faster... not that you can really measure that anyway!

    Cool. t'internet says my mobo is capable of 300gb/s which is sata 2 speeds so will take the jumper off.

    Thanks for your help Smids. :)
