Turbo codes, with potential for 5 dB coding gain over the conventional Viterbi detection schemes, are good candidates for the next generation detection/decoding schemes for magnetic recording systems. In this paper, timing recovery is included in the evaluation of turbo codes. Three timing recovery methods, namely voltage control oscillator (VCO) method, interpolated timing recovery (ITR) method and adaptive filter timing recovery (AFTR) method are examined for two turbo decoder architectures, full turbo and serial turbo. Bit error rate (BER) results from simulations suggest that full turbo decoder is more robust than the serial turbo decoder. For serial turbo decoder, error floor is seen earlier in VCO and ITR methods than AFTR methods. Using s-random interleaver seems to be able to remove such an error floor
