Benchmark Results

Data Transfer Diagram

Fujitsu's current enterprise drive series is able to offer excellent read and write performance. The maximum read speed is 55 MB/s - a result that clearly outperforms the IDE flagships now. The minimum read speed at the end of the medium also turns out to do quite well: the drive does not fall below 35 MB/s.

Data Transfer Performance

In comparison to the drives that we have previously tested, the MAN3367MP goes ballistic! Of course, we have to take into account that it is the newest drive, but still, the minimum read speed clearly leaves the competition in the dust, and that goes for both IDE and SCSI models!
