Default Five 250 GB HDD Comparison

When buying a hard disk drive most users are only concerned with the drive’s capacity. Should you also care about performance? We compared the performance of nine mainstream 250 GB SATA-300 hard disk drive models from Seagate, Samsung, Western Digital, Maxtor and Hitachi. Is there a big performance difference among them? Is it worthwhile to pay a little bit more and get a drive with a bigger buffer? If so, which is the fastest 250 GB in the market? Check it out!

The average user will be good with a Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3250310AS, which is in our opinion the drive that provides the best cost/benefit ratio for the average user from all nine 250 GB drives we tested. Maxtor DiamondMax 21 is the same drive with a different label, but at least at Newegg.com it is a little bit more expensive. This Maxtor model is also a great buy if you can find it for the same price or less.
