When it comes to access times, the MAJ turns in a score of 8.5 milliseconds. Though such a figure matches the speed of the IBM Ultrastar 36LZX and comes in half a millisecond ahead of the Seagate Cheetah 36LP, it nevertheless indicates a seek time that's a bit higher than the specs claim... more around the neighborhood of 5.0 to 5.5 ms rather than the svelte 4.7 proffered by Fujitsu. As a result, the Quantum Atlas 10k II soundly defeats the MAJ with a access time of just 7.9 ms.

When it comes to sequential transfer rates, however, the MAJ narrowly edges out the Atlas 10k II (and even Seagate's 15,000 RPM Cheetah X15) with an outer-zone score of nearly 43 MB/sec. It's inner-zone figure, exceeding 28 MB/sec, is substantially faster than Quantum's drive, which peters out at 25 MB/sec.
