The hard drive in question is a Seagate Barracuda 2TB. When I built my PC, about four months ago, sequential read/write in crystal disk mark was about 200MBps/110MBps. Now it is 130/100. No crashes and/or blue screens, corrupted data or strange sounds at this point, just the speed. That doesn't look normal for a half full new drive to me... Is it faulty or is that a normal slowdown? I'll probably just get a Samsung 860 QVO 2TB if I find out that the drive is failing.
