I have run a hard drive test just for wondering. I noticed that the speed is not up to snuff. I have a SATA-150 drive on a RAID controller (dont have RAID setup) in there and it is only going at 90.7MB, what settings could I adjust to get more speed.
You are confusing interface speed with data access speed. Your speeds are fine, you'll never get anything approching 150mbyte/sec from any current SATA drive. I just ran the quick test on my P4 3.2ghz system with a RAID0 array with two WD 250gig SATA drives, it clocks in at 113 on this test.
I just down loaded the same test for a compasion, My burst speed be it correct or not with 2 x 80g sata's on raid 0 was 168.5mb/s, , Random access 12.7ms, Average speed 78.5mb.
I then run the test on my 80g non sata storage drive and I got Burst speed of 91mb/s, random access 15.3ms, average speed 47.2mb/s
