in usb 3.0 the spped is around 94-95K Mbps. but once it starts to copy the second iso it drops to around 30K Mbps.
its same with both the external HDDs.
Copying and pasting files via Windows explorer is always going to be a bit inefficient. There's a lot for the machine to do when explorer is in the way. There will be pauses on big files, especialy .iso files. (at least Windows 7 is better than Vista's copy/paste, which was just horribly slow)
Have you tried to do the copy job using RoboCopy instead of Copy/Paste in Windows explorer? RoboCopy is much more efficient. However, big .iso files & other big files will still pause during the run.
