Hey all,

I just bought a 2TB WD Caviar Green, and while trying to transfer files from my other HDD's (350mb each file, 3-4gb per folder) I am getting transfer rates of 3-5mb/s.... It starts at 100-90mb/s but steadily drops to 3-4mb/s. I understand it is going through memory first but I would imagine that it should be around 20-30mb/s??? Anyone else have these drives and do you get similar speeds???
