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.

a bigger buffer? If so, which is the fastest 320 GB in the market? Check it out!"
