Any ideas? Is this normal? Will a later version system behave better?

Thanks .. That's the answer for what I was looking for. And I appreciate your thoughts on the speed comparison during normal usage.Cigarguy wrote:AFAIK Lenovo's 20 and 30 series (i.e. T420, X220, W530, T430, etc) is SATA II speed on mSata. So you should be benching 250-280 MB/s in ATTO. For me SATA II speed is plenty fast enough and is unnoticeable between SATA II vs III during normal everyday usage.
When did Lenovo up that to SATA III for the mSATA?
Pretty sure they didn't; instead they switched to M.2 slots in later systems (e.g. my T440p). Those are either SATA III or, in the latest generation, PCIe/NVMe. Dell continued to use mSATA in some later systems but I think those were still only SATA II. Unfortunately Thinkpads mostly seem to use the 42mm M.2 which has fewer options than the more common 80mm size.BobA wrote: When did Lenovo up that to SATA III for the mSATA?
X31, X40, X61T, X61, X201, X220 (i7 IPS), W520 (2720QM/2000M/FHD), T440p (i7-4800MQ/GF730GT/FHD)

Correct. SATA II is all we'll get from an mSATA slot on any ThinkPad.jdrou wrote:Pretty sure they didn't; instead they switched to M.2 slots in later systems (e.g. my T440p).BobA wrote: When did Lenovo up that to SATA III for the mSATA?
