The DiamondMax Plus 60 produces an average access time of 13.1 milliseconds. Subtracting rotational latency from this figure yields a seek time of 8.9 milliseconds... not bad, and closer to specification than we've seen in a while. It should be noted, however, that the DM+60's access time clocks in slightly higher than its predecessor... the DiamondMax Plus 45 managed a 12.9 ms figure.

Sequential transfer rates top out at 38.4 MB/sec in the outer zone. Though this trumps the IBM Deskstar 75GXP, a long-time champion in this field, it isn't quite enough to match the Seagate Barracuda ATA III, a unit that leads the back with its 40.5 MB/sec score. The DM+60's inner-zone rates come in at a respectable 22.9 MB/sec.
