Re: Why so many ups and downs in speed transfer from SSD to HDD

Normal.

The drive heads have to find the place to write to which is often not contiguous. There could also be issues with over-filling the buffer in the hard drive. Hard drive writes tend to top out at 150 bit per second while the read times off the SSD are up to ten times that speed.
