Click here to examine the STR graph for this drive

Like the DiamondMax 80, the VL40 falls somewhat short of its specified seek time. WinBench 99 measures the drive's access time at 15.8 milliseconds. Subtracting the 5.6 ms of 5400 RPM rotational latency yields a measured seek time of 10.2 ms.

Outer zone transfer rates fall just shy of of 30 MB/sec while inner track figures rest at 17.5 MB/sec. These figures are identical to those of the DiamondMax 80.
