Hi folks,

i have on quick question, it seems linke that my harddrive performance is poor and is different to the same models of that macbook.

Here is my config:

MacBookPro4,1
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz
L2-Cache: 3 MB
RAM: 4 GB
Bus: 800 MHz
Boot-ROM-Version: MBP41.00C1.B03
SMC Version: 1.27f1
Harddrive: Hitachi HTS542520K9SA00

XBench says:

Xbench Version 1.3
System Version 10.5.5 (9F33)
Physical RAM 4096 MB
Model MacBookPro4,1
Drive Type Hitachi HTS542520K9SA00
Disk Test 33.10
Sequential 60.73
Uncached Write 60.23 36.98 MB/sec [4K blocks]
Uncached Write 66.60 37.68 MB/sec [256K blocks]
Uncached Read 42.77 12.52 MB/sec [4K blocks]
Uncached Read 92.06 46.27 MB/sec [256K blocks]

Uncached Write 7.32 0.77 MB/sec [4K bocks]
Uncached Write 69.02 22.10 MB/sec [256K blocks]
Uncached Read 67.98 0.48 MB/sec [4K blocks]
Uncached Read 100.19 18.59 MB/sec [256K blocks]

The harddrive has around 160GB free space. Im getting results of around 80mb/s in some tests from others with the same config and model.

Greetings / Thanks
