Western Digital Velociraptor 300GB SATA HD
SiSoft SANDRA XII SP2
In our SiSoft SANDRA XII SP2 testing, we use two of the suites built-in benchmarks: Physical Disk and File System. We ran the Physical Disk tests before formatting the test drives, but had to format the drives in order to run the File System tests. The results from this testing can be seen on this and the next page.
The WD Velociraptor outperformed all of the other drives we tested by significant margins in every measurable way according to SiSoft SANDRA's Physical Disk and File System benchmarks.
