Notes:

- Date: if no dating is reported on labels or stickers, latest datecode appearing on chips is given.
- n/c: not completed, not computed (Norton Sysinfo 7.0 only supports FAT16 partitions).
- Values have been rounded to unit (transfer) or to decimal (seek).

For testing purposes all drives have been connected to the end of the ribbon cable as "Single" (or "Master") in a single drive combination. Testing system was an IBM PC 330 Pentium-133 (model 6577-7BJ, w. integrated EIDE controller). This may involve a limitation for modern disk drives.
