The Barracuda ATA IV's relatively high access time hampers its IOMeter indices (normalized averages of SR's various access patterns under Light, Medium, and Heavy Loads). Seagate's drive scores 134.17 in the Workstation index, almost enough to keep up with Maxtor's DiamondMax Plus 60 but nonetheless significantly trailing units from IBM, Western Digital, and Samsung.
