I have a very similar problem, Please can some help us! read 1750MB and write +- 1524MB. Updated new drivers, firmware, fresh new windows 10 pro, etc..BIOS. Why am i not getting +-3500MB speeds


I have same problem. I installed the drive into a Asus 2 year old ultra book and samme issue. The read/write speed caps at 1800/1700 mbs.
