Again, I said about normal. The speed can vary widely depending whereabouts on the data is stored on the drive, there are also other considerations to take into account, for example on my laptop with a pATA drive I can see 35MB/s from data at the front of the drive, down to about 27 at the back of the drive. The actual hdd and hdd controller also affect the speed
