Terabyte harddrives are becoming more common, or else ExtremeTech would never be able to do a seven drive round up.  Five of the drives have been reviewed previously, but they are adding two new drives.  Read on to learn who the king of high capacity storage is!  The review covers more than just speed, in today's world noise and power consumption are also very important.

"As terabyte capacity hard drives continue to roll out into the mainstream, we're doing our share to keep up with this

exploding technology. Today, we're reviewing two more of these super-sized drives and will compare results with their

fellow terabyte cousins.

The two drives we look at more closely today are old and new in the market space for terabyte hard drives. The Hitachi

A7K1000 is built on the 7K1000 architecture, and represents one of the older families of terabyte drives. Hitachi uses

five 200GB platters and ten heads in the A7K1000.

The other is a desktop drive from Samsung: the Spinpoint F series HD103UJ. Samsung's a relatively new player in the

global storage market. Their past desktop drives have suffered from somewhat anemic performance, but have garnered a

reputation for low noise and power usage. Samsung took aim at the performance issues by building the HD103UJ with just

three platters and six heads for a whopping 334GB per platter."
