Benchmarks across the board for the latest drives aren't looking too hot, at least not with SR's tests and testbed. Does anyone have any other benchmarks to look at-- e.g. from Tech Report or anyone?
Time to wait for Atlas 10k V results. Looks like I may pull the trigger on an older 10K.6 if I can still get them new and cheap (enough) for another data storage drive...

Glad to see I'm not the only one disappointed in this drive... I guess I'll stick with my humble 10K.6 for the time being.

Perhaps Eugene is hoping/expecting that forthcoming drives will prove more worthy of the award. After all, "Safe Buy" is a relative thing, and if (for example) the new Maxtor drives don't suffer the shortcomings of their Seagate counterparts, and someone was looking for which drive SR recommends, it wouldn't help to have awarded both brands a Safe Buy award.
Of course, Eugene can answer your question best, SCSA.
If I'm wrong, please tell me why. I'm trying to help, but I'm here to learn, too.

i don't get it. how can the performance of a 10K rpm drive with avg access time of 8 ms be the same as that of a 7.2K rpm drive with avg access time of 13.7 ms???
