    Can't understand this really. bought couple new Samsung F3 single platter 500Gb drives. Both are from same batch both carries the same firmware, but other drive read's 146MB/s while other only 131MB/s same sectors/parts of the drive. I even switched them to test with same SATA cable and port so it ain't the cable and it ain't the port.

    I'm just wondering does these devices have a soul or how is it possible with identical equipment?

    Are they fastened correctly/tightly in your case? Excess vibration can reduce HDD transfer rates.

    Yeah, that's the weird part. I actually took both to out just for make enviroment exact to be sure.

    Just damn weird, but well gonna hit 3rd disk in there soon also see, if that matches either speeds so I can band those together.
