you're right about the bad performance from Reading/Writing to the same drive, but in fact, not too many users use 3TB drives as a single partition, here are my transfer rates moving very large HD movies to the same partition, still much faster than a green drive;


It would take me 2 or 3 seconds to move those 200 gig from one "partition" to another.  The trick is that I'm not forcing myself into a situation where I need to actually read and re-write the blocks.  I just need the directory records updated.

But if you're using these to store movies, why the heck do you need multiple partitions anyway?  Again, you've creating the problem, and then advocating 7200 rpm drives to try to address it, even though it doesn't really solve the problem well, just less bad than the 5400 rpm drives would.
