Too bad it only includes one real world test (HTPC) and not the most representative for normal usage.
Seagate 7200.4 does very well in synthetic benchmarks, but when it comes to real world performance it's a different story. The reviews of Techreport.com showed the WD5000bevt and WD3200bekt to have the upper hand over the 7200.4.
I still believe the 7K500 will outperform the 7200.4 and WD3200bekt in most single user, normal notebook usage scenarios, like my review showed. It doesn't have the fastest I/O though, probably caused by the not so good acces times.
Tom's Hardware has also published a lot of benchmarks on all these drives. Unfortunately all synthetic, but PC Mark Vantage can give a nice indication. Hitachi 7K500 comes out top (link).
