Hardware Secrets have gathered nine 320GB drives to compare their performance, especially in the effect that 8MB and 16MB cache's have on performance. All but the VelociRaptor are well under $100; and at four times the price it looks a lot less attractive after the benchmarks have all been tallied. If you are looking for speed, not capacity; this article serves up all you could desire on one platter.
"When buying a hard disk drive most users are only concerned with the drive's capacity. Should you also care about
performance? We compared the performance of nine 320 GB SATA-300 hard disk drive models from Seagate, Samsung, Western Digital
and Hitachi. Is there a big performance difference among them? Is it worthwhile to pay a little bit more and get a drive with
a bigger buffer? If so, which is the fastest 320 GB in the market? Check it out!"
