    HDTach does the most credible job of measuring access time (and seek time), but the freebee versuin will do that. The pay version is only needed for measuring write time to disk.

    Re: 74gb raptor random access is over 10 msecs

    Why is your CPU usage so high? Are you running Folding while testing? Or do you have a cheep onboard RAID controller? Most of those "Hardware" RAID controllers that come on motherboards are not true Hardware RAID. They actually require the CPU to do their thing. No good in my books.

    Edit: Earlier test had 0% CPU usage. So I guess you could pretty much ignore this.
