    Hm, well my test was pretty unscientific. I just copied a bunch of files. I found it it depends on the file size pretty strictly, and also since it's reading / writing the same drives, I guess it would be ~140-160? Something like that.

    What are you guys using to scientifically run tests? =p

    You mean to test the speed? I was using HDTune.
