New IDE Hard Drives at 20 GB per Platter: Fujitsu MPG3409 and Western Digital WD400

Access Time


Even though the WD drive works at 7200 rpm, its access time is not very impressive. The IBM DTLA series continued to stay the undisputed performance champion.

I am quite surprised to see the Fujitsu drive performing better than the faster rotating Western Digital drive (HD Tach 2.61). I double-checked the result under Windows 2000 and Windows 98 and continued to get those results.
