From my experience with Netapp tech support, the older SATA drives would experience a "diminished state of return" above 40 IOPS. This was a couple of years ago so it might be different now.

Have you got the link you referenced here? We're really struggling with our iops atm (as I'm sure you already know!), so anything that might help out is welcome.
