Just curious, what hard disk (not SSD) has achieved the golden 5.9/6.9 drive score on the Windows Experience Index for you guys?

Any current gen 7200rpm drive should get 5.9 on the Vista WEI.

As for higher scores, I have a pair of velociraptors in RAID, but I can't tell you what they get on the Win7 WEI, since I'm using an X25 M as my boot drive. Anyone know how to test a non-system drive for WEI score?

Sorry, I meant 7.9 for Windows 7.

Good question! Lemme see if I can pry the answer from a contact in Microsoft. Google has failed me so far. In any case, this makes for a good article idea!
