also - this uses intellipower, intellipark and intelliseek, which are 
basic things... i doubt these will be of any use in data centers where 
drives are under constant strain. in an archive systems these, with good 
power managment and resorce managment, are good things.

also - are the figures avg.s and dont take into account that data 
centers usage is greater than desktop?
