    Western Digital Caviar WD1200JB

    Greetings. I've been sending my readers to Storage Review for the latest hard drive test results for many moons. Recently, I shocked the internet world by posting a review of the WD1200JB five days before Storage Review: http://www.barefeats.com/hard22.html It includes numbers from the IBM 120gxp (80GB). Last night I tested a pair of the WD1200JB's on an ATA/133 Hardware RAID card and attained low level sustained transfer speeds in excess of 108MB/sec. I used a low level test that employs 10MB block size (so readers wouldn't cry foul about the 8MB buffer). Pretty awesome drive. By the way, GoogleGear.com is selling them for $269 and change.
