Swansong: Testbed3

An upcoming review of Fujitsu’s 10,000 RPM MAT3000 will mark the final drive to be tested under our landmark Testbed3 configuration. The constant 2 GHz P4 configuration has carried us well for over three years. It’s time, however, to update the hardware, operating system, and, perhaps most important of all, the disk usage captures that assess single-user drive performance.

Shortly after Testbed4’s launch, SR will bring readers our first notebook drive roundup, featuring the latest entries from all players. Reviews of notebook drives have been requested for years. We’re pleased to announce that regular stand-alone reviews will follow the initial roundup.

We hope all SR readers worldwide enjoyed a pleasant new year!
