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.

Good luck.
