WOW! Who would have figured that a drive that is supposedly so much slower than it's competition could not only keep pace with the big boys, but beat it in a number of areas? To be honest, I didn't think this drive had a chance in a Power System. Man, was I mistaken.
Like I stated before, my main interest in this drive was due to its huge size and the fact that Seagate was rating its access time at 8.9ms. While the access times seemed to be exaggerated, the performance just blew me away! I never would have figured this sleeper to be the performance hound that it is. It's almost scary to think about a drive like this in a 7200 RPM flavor, but I think that it would surely take the crown.
So, are you building a new system and need large amounts of storage? Are your MP3s starting to get in the way of your big install sized games? Do you want to be able to laugh at your friends when they brag about that new 60GB drive that they just got? If any of these fit your style, then take a very serious look at this drive. Its transfer rates are not stellar, but are very much on line with its rated capabilities. It's overall performance, though, are well above what you would expect in a drive that is aimed at the "Budget Conscious" crowd.
Bottom line...Unless you're running a business server that requires the ultimate in speed for your clients, then you just can't go wrong with this drive. Size, speed, performance it just does it all. Whether you're into gaming or just want to store all those large files for easy use, you'll be happy with the Seagate U-Series 6 80GB hard drive.
