Default Post Your Hard Drive Benchmarks Here

I havent seen a thread like this yet, so I'll make one.
Here's what you do:
Install and run HD tach- 32mb test
Take a Screenshot
Post it here.

Lets see who can get the best: Average transfer rate, access time, burst rate, and lowest CPU usage.

I'll start.



EDIT: Bonus points for whoever can get the worst of each category also.

This is from my Laptop since it was what I am currently using. I don't feel like turning on my desktop to bench.

Shit. My hard drive is borked. I got less than the ATA, and it's a Seagate barracuda. It's under warranty... I know it's borked because Seagate DiskTools or W/E it's called is telling me so!

Well, I'll try de-fragging it or something. I'm also testing my secondary HD.
