Re: Evaluating my drives ST3500320AS vs WD6400AAKS
Here is a ss of the WD6400AAKS tested on Hdtach. One note on benchmarking is the Computer needs to be doing very little work other than the benchmark. Any programs that start with windows and run in the background need to be stopped. For this test I also disabled the paging file, too.
There are no firmware problems to report for this drive.
