HDD Score in Windows Experience Index

For some reason on Windows 7 the hard disk all ways Scores 5.9. Why is this? It's like it on my gaming computer and medium to high end systems that we sell at work. which in by acident have 1TB hard disk or higher. Can anyone else get a higher score for their hard disk?

Only SSD gets higher.
