Default cable test: write sector error

Does this error specifically point to the hard drive or can it be something else?

I have 2 new hard drives and both receive this error. I have already RMA'd these drives and the replacements receive this error as well. Transfer speeds are slow as well.

This is the hard drive: - Western Digital Caviar Black WD5001AALS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Antec 1200
Intel Core i7 920@2.7ghz
Gigabyte X58A-UD3R
Noctua NH-D14
ATI Radeon HD5870
Corsair 6gb DDR3 1600
Corsair 850HX PSU
OCZ Vertex 2 120gb SSD
WD Caviar Black WD5001AALS 500gb
Windows 7 Pro 64bit

I know someone who pressed yes...
