It's really impossible to say -- you can get through a couple hundred in an hour when they're mostly irrelevant, like when you just get copy after copy of some public filing, if you're focused and have good review software. But if it's all email chains were you have to really pay attention, or complex spreadsheets, you might be lucky to get through a few dozen in an hour.

This helps, i've been averaging around 90 an hour. Seems to be a mix of irrelevant emails and some responsive stuff. No numbers involved so not that dense.

Sounds like you're doing fine. Also depends on whether you're just doing some initial fly-by coding or a closer review but either way sounds like you're doing ok.
