WB99/Win2k Low-Level Measurements

Click here to examine the STR graph for this drive

The MPF-AT turns in a disappointingly high access time of 17.4 milliseconds. Subtracting the standard 5.6 milliseconds of latency associated with 5400 RPM spindle speeds yields a measured seek time of 11.8 ms... well over the manufacturer's claim. Such misses are unfortunately becoming more common these days. The Seagate U10, for example, claims an 8.9 ms seek time but measures out with a 17.7 ms access time.

Outer zone transfer rates top out at 23.8 MB/sec, right in line with the competition. Ditto for the drive's inner-track score of 14.4 MB/sec.
