Hi Steve,

Just want to share my READSPEED results. I ran it on a Lenova ThinkCentre-A63 with 500GB SSD, 1TB Seagate internal drive, 1 Seagate 2TB external usb-3 drive, 1 Western Digital "My Passport" 4TB external usb-3 drive:



Code:
   NOTE: 2 faster SATA drives are attached to slower SATA links. You may add
         the /ident command-line option to display and identify the drives.

Yes, they do!

The SSD is likely running at 1/2 to 2/3 of it's maximum speed due to the speed limit of SATA 2. The Spinner is likely running at it's full speed.
