You showed results for 2TB drives.  I cited the exact same benchmark for 3TB drives, since that was what the OP intended to buy.  They got faster.

As for copying between partitions on the same drive - there's your problem right there.  Don't partition a drive in the first place!  Any drive will show poor performance reading and writing to itself - it cannot stream.   It's probably faster to copy it to another drive and then back again.

Ok fortunately I found the 3tb review too here are some shots;

Avereges 98MB/s

Using different driver version of the controller

from the Seagate Barracuda 3tb review;

you're right about the bad performance from Reading/Writing to the same drive, but in fact, not too many users use 3TB drives as a single partition, here are my transfer rates moving very large HD movies to the same partition, still much faster than a green drive;
