SATA HDD speeds

I've been benchmarking my hard drive with pcmark '05 and the speeds I am getting are scary.

HDD Test Suite

HDD - Application Loading 4.15 MB/s

HDD - General Usage 2.87 MB/s

HDD - File Write 6.56 MB/s


I think these are suppose to be at least 100 MB/s but I don't know. I was wondering if anyone knows if maybe I have something turned off or something that could be off. In the meantime I am gonna try to find more benchmarking tools for my hdd.

EDIT: I used HD TACH and it showed results that made sense. My drive is a little slow, but not as bad as I previously thought. PCmark '05 needs to do better in explaining how their test works.
