Shortstroking.
aha, thats the one i was talking about. now even if you cut this drives capacity in half, you are greatly reducing the number of tracks. not halfway across, but even further out being the minimum. a terabyte drive with access times significantly reduced - now thats something to be a little impressed over.

one thing ive always wondered was why is it that there is always a single read/write head per platter? who not multiple? would that be better?

regardless of why you would want the drive... comparing a 7200 2TB drive with the 10K velociraptor or an SSD is like comparing a Volkswagon Jetta to a Porsche...

The price is different as well as the speed. I can understand if the review is done just for the sake of saying the review was done, but the results would be irrelevant.

I can understand if the SSDs were reviewed and compared against each other, but this comparison makes no relevance or sense.

I get your point, except in this case the Jetta is priced like a Porsche

The price will drop soon. It's just brand new out in production while SSD and velociraptor prices hover around the same.
