Are you booting off a flash drive instance of TruNAS (recommended setup
afaik)? If so, is it USB 3 on both ends?
Other than that, just make sure the drives are 7200rpm and latest SATA
spec should be fine. I don't use TruNAS itself, but use zfs pools on two
physical hosts, which is what TruNAS is using "under the hood"
So, I would check your boot media to begin with, then check which SATA
implementation you have 1.5, 3, or 6 ... Mbps, and rpms of hard drive.
