As with all mechanical drives, you have a high performance side and a low performance side when reading and writing data. The average read performance for the 5K4000 is 106MB/s. The peak measured in this sequential test is 136.9MB/s; obviously the cache plays a role in determining that result. On the low end of the scale we achieved 62MB/s.

The write performance is almost identical to the read results we captured. The average and minimum are best used in determining performance. In the average category we hit 105MB/s and down low just 61.9MB/s.
