this thing is hauling balls! yeeeeeeeeeeehaw! i want to run a benchmark test but not sure which one to run. anyone have any suggestions? seriously, this drive is truly amazing. what a beefcake! i set the 160gb that came with my powermac as the backup drive so i can start using it to archive. the raptor is quiet and runs flawlessly. go out and buy one now! i got the raptor for 159.99 plus tax with a $30 mail-in rebate. total comes out to around $140 out the door after the mail-in rebate. not too shabby!
