seagate baracuda xt 750gb ST3750640AS

Hi everyone my problem is i switched hard drives a few days ago just because and my WEI has went down by .2 the previous hard drive was the same make but 500gb

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I would suggest checking that write caching is still enabled

Widows WEI is not very accurate You might be happier testing both discs with ATTO or HD Tune

Windows 7x64 Home Premium SP1

I don't have a solution but I have used a Hitachi 1TB sata, two different Barracudas ST31000528AS (firmware CC38) and always had a WEI of 5.9. Also pre and post SP1.
I went to IDE from ACHI mode for reasons I won't bother going into to, got marginally better(?) speed and some other benefits, but still WEI of 5.9.
