post a screenshot from HDTune - your average speed figure is meaningless on its own.

You should have write-back enabled, but you need a battery to reliably do so.

You may be expecting too much from 2 Green drives though.

Buy faster drives. WD Green drives aren't made for speed.

Most people run a 64k stripe size. But its not going to make a difference on transfer rates. Your drives are too slow.

If its an everyday array with games and OS and whatnot installed on it, run 64k stripe. If its a lot of larger files, run 128k stripe.

But again, that WILL NOT affect your speeds much, if any at all.

Even with Green drives this does seem a bit low. My single 1TB green pulls about 90MB/s by itself. I would think with two he would pull ~150MB/s.
