    Considering it fell on the floor, yes. It looks normal. :p

    Unless transfer rates are that low on average, it looks odd.

    It's fucked. Hard.

    I never saw a HHD with 1 digit write/read speed, and 4x access time, while having the CPU running at 40%.

    Wow, thats slow and unusual to the array pattern I see with other's drives.

    Is it packed with files? Would Defragging it help? Still though your 1 MB/s is amazing awkward.

    Same thing happened to me a while ago, turns out it was a molex power connector which after I sleeved it, didn't replace the connector properly. After I pushed the pin in it's housing it worked fine.
