Several things to look at, such as is it doing full disk, or only the data on the disk currently? SSDs are quick, was the 2 hours a normal disk? Also, does the drive support hardware encryption?

If its different processors the newer intels support certain types of encryption too boosting speeds.

Old i3s believe it or not, at least four years old.
Cheapo SSDs as well - so looks like the drive is handling it phenomenally well.

SSDs that support the eDrive standard can be encrypted with Bitlocker in a couple of seconds.
