As an aside, this review is about 70% of what we'll have in a few weeks. We're working on a proprietary series of benchmarks that will use a consistent set of real world scenarios that we'll run for each drive. Once that is complete, we'll update this and any other reviews with those benchmarks as well.
Update - here's what we've been working on...please offer feedback.

the Constellation ES reached a maximum temperature of 103F as recorded with a Fluke IR thermometer.
Please don't make all of us non-US guys google the conversion to °C every time we read your reviews!

Actually us US-based folks are already used to seeing tempratures for PCs expressed in 'C'
I was actually thinking the same thing. Going forward I think we are going to present temp info in celcius.

I check the link about the benchmarks. I never knew that hard disks perform differently with gaming, viewing movies, and using the computer for work. About the workstation, what programs are you going to use for the testing of the hard disk's performance?

The differences come from the fact that certain processes are sequential write/read heavy (the HTPC one for example), sequential/mixed random read heavy (gaming), and mixed random/seq small and large file (workstation).

I don't know if my next question is related here. Why is it that it takes longer for me to copy 2 large files (like movies) at the same time rather than copying one file then proceed on the second after the first was done?
