Seagate's drive delivers a Business Disk WinMark 99 of 8.1 MB/sec, a score high enough to best IBM's Deskstar 60GXP and to come close to Maxtor's Diamondmax Plus 60. Similarly, the 'Cuda's High-End WinMark of 20.5 MB/sec is enough to match Maxtor and IBM. In both the Business and High-End tests, however, Western Digital's WD1000BB maintains a commanding lead over the competition.
