The run-away winner is the dual OWC Mercury Extreme solid state drive in RAID-0 stripe setup. Use of a 16K stripe size is fastest, but 32K and 64K are not far behind.

Hard drives are no match for the fast solid state drives used here, but among the hard drives, the Hitachi 500GB Travelstar 7K500 is a standout.
