Laptop Storage: 640GB And 500GB Drives From WD And Fujitsu

Benchmark Results: Access Time And I/O Performance

Western Digital has been better in delivering quick access times than many others, and once again the WD Scorpio drive beats all of its 5,400 RPM competitors in this test.

The WD Scorpio’s agility benefits I/O benchmarks, where it outperforms the Seagate Momentus 7200.4 in the database and file server tests. Fujitsu’s results with the MHA2500CH are average, but acceptable.
