Ok SiSoft SANDRA is showing that im getting a 10MB/sec transfer. Its a new hard drive in a mirror but the 2nd drive is old and im not sure which drive is being run off of. Also, all the loading times seem very fast so im thinking theres a problem with the program. Can someone recommend a godo program to benchmark my hardh drives?

wow, i pulled 122.4 mbps with my DiamondMAX 9. Wonder why im getting better numbers then your raptor?

Burst data is useless. That's just the data coming out of the cache on the drive. Burst is more a test of the interface (SATA/SCSI) and not the drive. Max sustained is what the max read or write speed is from the out diameter of the media. Expect ~70MB/s from a raptor.
