SSD speed significantly lower than advertised Solved
I bought a Toshiba - External Hard Drive Toshiba HDTB420EK3AA 2 TB 2,5" USB 3.0 Black (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07994QL95?ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details&th=1) and it's advertised with a read speed of 540 mb/s. But, when I run the drive in Blackmagic speedtest it only reads at 120 mb/s. I've tried multiple computers and multiple different USB 3.0 cables, all are producing this speed result. I work in video editing, so I need a a lot faster SSD speed for production. Any tips on making it run faster? I have limited knowledge of storage and SSDs stuff so if you need more info from me, please clearly explain what I can do. Thanks~!
Edit: This is an HDD, not an SSD, that's my bad. I thought it was an SSD when I bought it.
