Default 5 WD,Maxtor,Seagate Drives Tested



Is the Western Digital Caviar 800JB the fatest harddisk on earth? Can't you really hear the Maxtor Diamondmax Plus9 spin? What about the Seagate Barracuda IV, has it become antique? Read all about it in this 5 harddisk roundup, also featuring the Maxtor Diamondmax and the Western Digital 800BB.

that's pretty hard to test Belgatom, the shops cant miss the HD drives for more then 2 weeks.

on such short period the durability is hard to test.
But! google + tech forums can answer you this question

thanks for your comment, BiCker is silently very happy also

have 2 DiamondMax 9 Plus 2mb cache drives now here
2x120gb hooked up to a HighPoint PCI ATA100 controller

takes 24seconds to copy 793Mb between them
pretty slick in my humble opinion

I changed the maxtor raid0 setup with 2 seagateV 80GB non raid.
HD's are almost inaudible and more then fast enough.
Took 4 to 5 hours to format and partition the 160GB though.

80GB NTFS partitioning with w2k = about 20 min
160 GB resizing + 6 partitions creation & formatting (NTFS and FAT32 (for software and drivers)) = 4 to 5 hours
