It's a 7200 (a seagate momentus 500G 7200.4), but that doesn't matter
much for this test. I was using a 2G test partition, so it wasn't the
disk size.

On a SSD it will be better of course, as barriers are much cheaper,
but it probably will wear out the SSD much faster then it needs to.

Cheers, Tridge
