Seagate 750 GB Barracuda Enters The Big League

Access Time

Access time for the Seagate is slower than the Western Digital, which takes the lead, by only 0.1 milliseconds when compared to the DiamondMax. Given the nature of the h2benchw 3.6 test, it may be that the highly touted NCQ is getting in the way here. However, there is not too much difference among the scores of all three in this category.
