I thought there were hardware problems with the Sandy Bridge chipset.
Might be worth checking if you have one of the problem ones.
You could try a newer kernel version, because it might work better
with a new chipset.

Try a few non-destructive speed checks with "hdparm -t  /dev/sdX"
where X is the HD unit you wish to test.
