I have in my system:
128GB Corsair SSD
500GB Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm
300GB WD Velociraptor 10,000rpm
benchmarked them all a while back and it went: (fastest to slowest)
IMO The velociraptor is by far the fastest drive (even though it annoyingly gives a lower WMI Rating than the SSD)
EDIT: I forgot to include the 2TB USB Drive, which is also seagate, but its USB, so it would be at the bottom of both lists anyway, lol.
However, i'm reckoning with the introduction of SATA III, and advancements in the SSD tech will probably see the end of the poor ol' hard drive
soon, as long as the price comes down, lol.
