Are my HDTune results normal? WD Caviar Black 1TB

Not sure what, if any programs I needed to have running or closed during the test, but I just left the computer idle while it tested.

Wondering if these are normal results or low/high?

Looks good to me. I think I se very, very minor fragmenting. Not enough to realy hurt performance but check with a defrag app, Smart Defrag is free, good and fast.
Hmm, okay. I defragmented it with windows system tools yesterday, but I'm sure it didn't get everything.

I just thought the minimum write speed was low, but I guess since it's not in raid that would be why?

Can't wait to post my HDTune when my SSD arrives on Wednesday!
I didn't think you could tell anything about the files from a low-level benchmark. The small down spikes are probabally from windows accessing the drive, if you run the test a few times and they show up exactly the same it could indicate a problem.
