    Which model series was your 60GB Deskstar? 75GXP, 60GXP or 120GXP? One of my 15GB 75GXPs died recently in my RAID array; since I had a 400BB supplemental drive, I just bought another 400BB and set up a new array; the remaining good 75GXP is my supplemental drive and the toasty 75GXP sits on my desk. Nice heavy paperweight.

    how many commands long is the queue? a full 256 like SCSI or (lol) just 2 or 4?

    how can they benchmark a drive like that without using a SCSI benchmark? wouldn't an IDE benchmark simply give it only 1 command at a time forcing it to function as a normal drive?
    what am i missing here?
    You are incorrect.
