In addition to its 5.2 ms average seek time, 10,000 RPM, and 1.2 million hours MTBF, data throughput is 150 MB/second from the SATA interface.
A disk cache of 256K is extremely important in lowering the average seek time; a buffer of this size is not hard to find.
The average seek time of the AppleCD SC drive and its equivalents is around 300 to 500 milliseconds.
The HPM851F contains nine platters with a formatted capacity of almost 700 MB.(*) A single spindle rotating at 3,600 rpm provides an average latency time of 8.33 ms with an average seek time of 18 ms.
(2), media transfer rate of 488 Mbps, rotational speed of 4,200 rpm, average seek time of 15 ms, and interface transfer rate of 100 MB/s.
The 7K60 also shows a 20-percent improvement in average seek time (time it takes the read/write arm to arrive at the desired data track).
This process boosts the performance of the array's or server's quad-speed CD-ROM drives, which provides an average seek time of 150 milliseconds, to 30x speed with an average seek time of 10 milliseconds.
Maxtor's high performance, 3.5-inch hard disk drive features an 850Mb data storage capacity, 12ms average seek time, 64K cache and a two-year warranty.
Weighing less than two ounces, CMS' Fire & Forget has a data transfer rate of up to 20MB per second, with an average seek time of 15ms.
It enables the drives to oppose shock load levels without drive failure and they feature a sub-9.Oms average seek time. Merging a 100MHz SDRAM memory for sustained transfer rate, it also offers a 2MB cache buffer, Maxtor's proprietary Dual Wave processor, and UltraDMA 66 for up to 66MB/sec transfer rates, adaptable to 100MB/sec rate with a utility installation.
The Ultra 160 SCSI Atlas V offers a density of 9Gb/platter in 9, 18 and 36Gb capacities, and an average seek time of 6.3ms, which according to Quantum is the fastest seek time in the world for a 7200rpm drive.
In an effort to impress customers with 6x, 8x, and 10x transfer rates, press releases and ads from CD-drive manufacturers and vendors often remain silent about the average seek time of the drive, even though it is crucial from the response-time perspective.
