    hmmmm... Can you please run HDTune on it if it is still there?

    Even if it's IDE, it may be faster (especially if it's a desktop one) , less latency, more continuous throughput, etc

    That disk is mighty slow - a lot slower than one of my flash drives - and that is not my fastest stick. And look at the access time. You are ready for a SSD.

    Almost twice the highest speed of my disk with almost 0 Access Time and without those deep dips, and it's a USB stick
    I will watch SSD prices, there seems to be deals on a local store There are even 2TB SATA3 mechanical HDs with way higher speeds, huge cache and lower access time

    Nothing beats an SSD. Last week they had 120GB drives for under $50 - at Newegg. But if you need a lot of storage, a SSHD may be a compromise.

    We used to have another working PC, but the motherboard died, so that HDD is in storage.
    My current case is one of those horrible smaller types, so installing hardware is a PITA.
    Sorry.

    Here is my current desktop HDD (WD Green 2TB - 64KB Blocks)

    That SanDisk is pretty good - although a bit nervous.

    I was surprised that its average wasn't much better than the HDD's.

    The SSD average looks better using 8MB Blocks (av: 250.7 MB/s, access: 0.2ms).
    The SSD is almost full (I've read that the performance drops as the amount of free space declines).

    I guess that is a possibility because of the way the garbage collection works. It would mainly impact write operations.
