Really?
It was a shocker to see the speeds were very nearly the same. I thought something was wrong. It's only a Corei3-2310M HP laptop. 7200rpm drive must help. It must prove that USB3.0 does make a difference.

It does make a big difference over 2.0. I figure about 2-3 times as fast. You'll never get the 10 times they talk about, but 2.5 times faster can make a big difference.

Somebody look at the read speeds of these 2 drives and tell me if this is possible.

OCZ Vertex 2 has claimed speeds of exactly what you are showing for both read & write. I'm more impressed with the write speed than the read speed.

What I was talking about is the read speeds of the WD green drive.

No. I was helping someone else in a thread. He showed me those 2 screenshots and I told him ATTO was wrong, there is no way that is possible. I'm just sort of checking on myself. If it was accurate, I'd be buying WD green drives, a bunch of them.
