smartctl say about the health of your drive?

   smartctl -H /dev/sda

try smartctl -A /dev/sda

that will give you a much longer list of statistics collected by the drive

the one I always look at first is the absolute value of "raw read errors" - if that's higher than 0, the drive is starting to fail, and its internal code is spending more and more time trying to read and re-read data off the media
