Hi Joe,

I know from my own experience that the drive in the Mac Pro can get quite dirty as the tray is pretty much open. I haven't noticed any speed issues with mine yet but I would suggest blowing out some dust with a rocket blower or similar and maybe try one of those drive cleaning CD/s brush things. Drives can slow down dramatically when they have to re-read data a lot so maybe that's what is causing the issue.

Good luck!
