Hi, I got hold of the drive recently, mainly for video editting needs.
But before putting it to use, I decided to 'test' a little but to my horror, the access time is 21ms!!!
This is going to affect all my transfers for sure.
How did your drive manage 14ms+ ??
Used HD-Tach versions 2.5/2.6 and even tried a 2.7 from a friend.
Using 2GHz P4 on a Granitebay motherboard with a SATA controller card - forgot what brand, but it is defintely not a controller issue since it didn't work with an 875 mobo using on board SATA (still 20+ms). so I've swapped controllers, platforms, OS, drivers and I still can't get my seek time similar to your review or anywhere remotely to it.
Oh yes, I've even RMA'ed the drive for another one.
It's a completely differen serial no. and manufacturing date too, but I still can't solve my seek problem. What's the issue here?
