I have been experiencing slow playing video (more than a minute) from external HDD on my Lenovo Z500 touch. I have used various updated players (vlc,windows media player, media player classic) which gave the same problem. I didn't experience slow playing video with media files on internal HDD (less than 15 secs).
So, what happen? USB have problem?

I am running these tests using desktop not Z500 on the external HDD that I used.
Here are the screenshots of the test using HD tune:
3) file benchmark
4) random access
5) extra test
This external HDD supports USB 3.0. I am using USB 2.0 port to do the tests and also playing videos.

I have try to run my laptop at high performance power profile. I was surprised to find out that the problem of slow playing video from external HDD has been solved. When i double click the media file, it took my laptop less than 8 secs to play it. So, I won't run the benchmark using HD tune.
