Switching to the higher-capacity Scorpio Blue, despite its slower rotational speed, is practically a no-lose situation. Low data-content files that are typically accessed numerous times -- such as, say, bank or credit records -- are at a slight...

A 1TB hard drive running at 7,200 rpm, the Western Digital Caviar Black ($79.99 list) comes with a 64MB cache and runs through a 6Gb/s SATA connection. The disk also packs features like dual actuator technology, NoTouch ramp loading and a dual...

If you are looking for a huge speed boost from SATA 3GB/s to SATA 6GB/s you are not going to see it, at least not yet. In most of our tests comparing SATA 3GB/s to SATA 6GB/s we only saw a 15-30MB/s difference. While this is not a huge difference it...

Solid-state disks are easily one of the most exciting new technologies to grace the PC in recent years. The first examples didn't have the capacity or performance to measure up to their exorbitant price tags, but great strides have been made with...

Above is a chart we put together that represents an (unweighted) geometric mean of the overall performance of each drive, based on all the tests we performed. Use this chart as a rough guide only, as we used an admittedly simplistic methodology to...

Now, let’s do some summarizing. We will go through the tested products in alphabetic order.The Hitachi 7K1000.C had very odd basic firmware with low performance, but now it looks decent enough. It breaks no records and is not completely free from...

We do have those drives—the Spinpoint F3 and Deskstar 7K1000.C—en route to the Benchmarking Sweatshop, however. Once those have been run through our gauntlet of storage tests, we should have a much clearer picture of where the sweet spot...

The WD1002FAEX joins a long line of excellent drives from Western Digital, and seems to be as good a time as any for bumping up the interface throughput. Hopefully the push to SATA 6Gb/sec will help drive adoption of this new standard across the...

Die Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX ist sehr schnell. Der Test klärt, ob die 3,5-Zoll-Festplatte auch sparsam arbeitet. Besonderheit: Die Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX gehört zu den wenigen 3,5-Zoll-Festplatten, die bereits...

Western Digitals Caviar Black WD1002FAEX gehört zu den ersten Festplatten, die SATA 6 Gb/s beherrschen. Das schadet zwar nicht, aber nutzen tut es ehrlich gesagt auch nicht. Ob wir die Festplatte nun mit 3 oder 6 Gb/s betreiben, hat...

Ungleich einfacher ist die Entscheidung bei der Caviar Black. Diese ist nur rund 15 Euro teurer als Western Digitals etwas langsamere Caviar Blue mit gleicher Kapazität, dafür aber auch lauter. Ob sich der Leistungsgewinn gegenüber einer „normalen“...
