160, 250 and 320GB Notebook Hard Drive compare


Recommended Posts

A very good article from Tom's Hardware, reviewing the above 3 HD's and comparing to others already tested.

The test is very comprehensive and anyone on the prowl for a new drive is well to take a look here for what hot and what's not

While we're still waiting for two more 5,400 RPM 320 GB hard drives from Toshiba and Western Digital, the new Samsung Spinpoint M6 arrived with a bang. With the exception of its access time, which we can only rate as below-average, the 320 GB Spinpoint M6 is the fastest mechanical notebook hard drive that has arrived at our storage test lab yet. At 70 MB/s it is faster than 320 GB 3.5" drives were when they hit this capacity point; in fact it is even as fast as 500+ GB 3.5" hard drives that are only two years old. Power consumption is still acceptable, but too high for users that depend on maximum mobility. For everyone else, this is the best 2.5" notebook drive available at this time.

Hmmm, Samsung making decent drives, who would have thought even a year ago.

A nice new 320GB drive would be rather nice :)
