The access time is what you go by to see which one is the fastest overall.

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

Before I installed 7100 I decided to redo the raid setup for my raptors and reduced the strip size from 128 to 64 based on a friends recommendation and there isnt much difference in the results:

Original with 128 strip

now with 64 strip

but the plus is that the drives are somewhat quieter

OK so there is all of them.
Now you guys will know better then me, How do I hold up?

I really don't know how to read the benchmark.
Can anyone tell me why my USB Drive (Maxter One Touch) is the fastest of all my drives?

Take a look back in the thread on the Kingston flash drive used here that also blasts right past the ATA100/133/150 ide standard still seen with sata hard drives. There's nothing mechanical involved there to start with for instant besides usb bus access.

Here's a comparison between a SSD and a WD Caviar Black HD. I'm using HD Tune 3.0 but it shouldn't be much of a difference. With the SSD, you see the obvious stability which results in much better sustained performance. Of couse, seek times are beyond anything the WD can come close to. Overall, SSD comes out way ahead in this example.

Here is mine in Win7 RC-7100

67 processes running in task manager at the same time as the tests.

I don't know how to compare these results either, that is why I'm here to Learn
