also - this uses intellipower, intellipark and intelliseek, which are
basic things... i doubt these will be of any use in data centers where
drives are under constant strain. in an archive systems these, with good
power managment and resorce managment, are good things.
also - are the figures avg.s and dont take into account that data
centers usage is greater than desktop?
