kimiraikkonen is an unknown quantity at this point

I was tested a 600 mb file for a bursted transfer rate: 28-30 MB / sec.

Even, for example if you play an MPEG-2 file, for example encoded with 6400kbps, that means 6400 / 8(to convert "bits" to bytes") = 800 kilobytes (kb). That means the read speed is too enough to play with this basic calculation.

Additionaly, i have no files encoded higher than 3500kbps. I gave 6400kbps as an "example".

But still i couldn't find the answer, it becomes sometimes. I contacted Seagate official support again, they said, your drive is "OKAY".

Note: My bad sectors are cleaned (there were 3 "logical" bad sectors") with Seatool's low-lowel sector replacement.
"Iceman" will never be melted...
