Default Hardware drive speed test suite

I wonder whether it might be worth setting up an informal hardware drive test results database? When I see reviews of drive speeds and download speeds the standard test suites do not seem to be very applicable (large file transfers or game playing). So, somehow set up an online database we could enter specs into for loading a standard set of PLAY instruments.

So, for example, there could be a category for load time for QLP Steinway Full Master

And I might enter - Pegasus 12 TB RAID, 7200 RPM disks, Thunderbolt, and the load time in Play as - xx seconds.

Sure there are lots of variables but it would start to give some more real world impressions as to how the systems are working together. If we just go with load time then we do not need to worry about a standard Logic/Cubase/Reaper etc template - even though that might be better.
2011 iMac, 16GB RAM, 2 TB internal drive, 12TB external Pegasus Thunderbolt RAID, SO PLatinum Plus, Pianos, Ra, Silk, Gypsy, Goliath, SD2 Pro, Voices of Passion, Symphonic Choirs

Veneteaou will become famous soon enough

I definitely would support it, although we would need a sample size in the thousands to really make the information useful.
