Disagree. My data, and the vendor specs, continue to show different
media bandwidth speed for inner vs outer cylinders.
Well, Richard's data matches mine with tests of my HDDs
at home: I read in some 10-gb blocks at different offsets
(dd > /dev/null), and "linear" speeds dropped from about
150MBps to about 80-100MBps.
This was tested on a relatively modern 2TB Seagate drive.
Random IOs are still crappy on mechanical drives, often
under 10MBps ;)
