IOMeter presents a good test case for both seek times and command queuing.
Western Digital has a history of releasing enterprise-optimized derivatives of its GreenPower drives, so it's a good thing the Caviar Green handles multi-user IOMeter workloads with aplomb.

IOMeter CPU utilization is low across the board.
