I found lots of benchmarks for old SCSI drives.

While feeding my demons and searching for p0rn of insects getting drunk on rotten fruit (i'm a complicated man, don't ask), i came across this page:

It seems this particular gentleman was, some 11 years ago, highly interested in benchmarking of harddisks. ;D

The Atlas V is a Ultra 160 disk, i bet he had it on a Ultra2 SCSI interface.

Problem is, these benchmarks don't say anything about random access times. Lets face it, if you don't read or write video or audio data, sustained read/write is a pretty useless metric.

Also check out the Internet Archive's archive of Storage Review, circa 2007. They were the place to go for hard drive reviews from 1998-2005. Then they slowed down for a few years, then got bought and completely revamped. But the IA has all their old reviews still!
