As X-bit labs points out in their introduction, 250GB HDD offer you a good price per GB, and enough storage that you won't feel cramped. Since there are so many to choose from, they have gathered 30 different makes and models to test out in a huge review. In the end, it turns out that many of the drives will excel in certain applications, while falling behind in others, as well as some interesting findings about Native Command Queuing.
"HDDs with a storage capacity of 250 gigabytes currently have the most optimal price/performance ratio. Among the thirty
250GB products included into this roundup we have only published the results of the three HDDs from Hitachi before. So, our
new testbed has a new SATA/PATA controller, and today we can offer you the test results of all 30 HDDs tested on it."
