Our test system remains the same from our Hitachi review and the Western Digital 2.5" HDD review, which we will be porting over some results from including the 250GB Scorpio Drive. We used a desktop system to get the most out of the drive without having the notebook itself as a limitation.

 

HD Tach

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 3.0.1.0
