Here is a quick test run using my test rig:
- P3 800Mhz Slot 1
- 768 Megs of Ram
- Sound Blaster Audigy Xgamer (firewire port being used off the
- Windows 2000 Service Pack 3
- MPD drive (40Gig, 4200 IBM Travelstar 2.5" 9.5mm)
- Generic Firewire Drive (Maxtor 45Gig, 5400 rpm 3.5" drive)
Testing software used was Sisoft Sandra
Standard. Drive H: is the generic and drive I: is the MPD.
With the simple benchmark, it shows that the MPD drive is a tad
behind the generic branded version tested here. This is caused
by the 4200rpm hard drive model that is used in the MPD. With
that in mind, you will have to decide whether portability or speed is
more important to you.
Overall, the unit is easy to use and quite portable.
With the unit fully charged. I left the MPD run for about 6-7 hours,
no problems so far. Battery
life is said to be 10+ hours. An addition to
this unit that would have been nice is a battery life indicator. There is no indicator to
let you know how much battery life is left, which
makes it hard to predict when it will stop functioning. With
only a few gripes, this drive meets the demands for the road warrior.
