When it comes to reads across the drive we see that the Hitachi 7K500 has a higher peak than the Seagate Momentus XT, but not by a large amount. The average and minimum speeds even everything out. This is going to be an exciting battle between these next generation drives.

When it comes to write speeds across the drives the 7K500 has a clear advantage over the other drives.
