I do understand that it's like drag races for tractor-trailers (thought they have them too); for consistency and comparative evaluation purposes, it is nice to have those charts, nevertheless.

No, did not miss it, WD 150GB VR, which is good.

Last point/question, I promise. Now if that same drive was in the HDD test charts (as is in the SSD charts) than to extrapolate comparative times between HDD to SSD would easier, in my opinion. Or can I treat the WD 1TB VR (in the HDD charts) as a 'same-ish' drive, relative to the WD 150GB VR? Thanks in advance.
