WB99/Win2k Low-Level Measurements

Click here to examine the STR graph for this drive

The V20400 turns in a WinBench 99 access time of 14.4 milliseconds, a figure faster than all current-generation 5400 RPM hard drives. Subtracting 5.6 milliseconds to account for rotational latency yields a measured seek time of 8.8 milliseconds, allowing the Samsung to beat its specs. IBM's Deskstar 40GV, a peppy drive it its own right, scores 0.3 ms higher.

Sequential transfer rate scores, however, aren't quite as dominating. Samsung's score of 29 MB/sec in outer zones is decidedly average, trailing Western Digital's Caviar WD600AB by 5 MB/sec.
