“Taking a look at the burst results honestly made me say “WOW”! The Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 not only outscored the RAID 0 array of SATA 1.5 Gb/s drives, but it also blew away the Hitachi SATA 3 Gb/s 500GB drive by over 20 MB/s. Taking a look at the other results from this benchmark show that all of the drives are just about equal, and that the burst is the only place a major advantage will be had.”
