There is overhead involved, which brings those numbers down a bit.
Rendering the 3Gb/s interface not very optimal for the latest Velociraptor drive.
He didn't include overhead either :P
But you're right of course. Point still stands though!
We can do some more maths though! The 600 GB velociraptor has 64 MB cache. At 270 MB/s, you could empty/fill that cache in less then a quarter of a second! Without the drive's overhead, of course.
