The Tech Report reviews Samsung's SpinPoint T, a 400GB SATA drive with a 16MB cache and only 3 platters.   It does an impressive job of keeping up with the competition, even spinning at only 7200RPM, and it does it quietly and fairly cheaply too.

"Despite the fact that Samsung's hard drive brand hasn't garnered much attention, the SpinPoint line has developed a small but surprisingly

vocal collection of fans in the enthusiast community. Forum threads regularly extol the SpinPoint's affordable price tag, whisper-quiet

acoustics, and snappy performance. We even get email asking, practically begging, for us to take Samsung's latest SpinPoints for a, er,

spin.

And now we have. The folks at NCIX hooked us up with Samsung's latest desktop Serial ATA offering, the SpinPoint T, and we've run it through

our brutal suite of performance, noise, and power consumption tests. Read on to see how the SpinPoint fares against the best Hitachi,

Maxtor, Seagate, and Western Digital have to offer."
