Now we attach the drives to a FireWire port and run the test once again.
The first diagram shows the file creation speeds in NTFS. The Seagate looks best of all in the three patterns that consist of large files ?in these cases it is only inferior to the Maxtor OneTouch II. When processing small files, the Seagate loses its round and lags far behind both drives from Maxtor.
We canít name a winner in the read test as all the drives show similar results. The Seagate is the best in the Windows pattern.
This diagram shows how well the drives are copying files within one partition. The Seagate look good and can be considered the best by the total result of all the patterns.
Itís all principally the same in the copy-far test. Once again the Seagate has the first place by the total of the five patterns. It is most confident with small files once again.
