Best performing HD not going SSD yet
Posted 28 December 2010 - 09:32 PM
I am running W7 64bit, i7 920 cpu and 6gigs of DDR3 in tri channel.
I don't mind going back to platter drives. I just want something dependable and good.
What do you guys think?

EDIT:: Above recommendations are above $200!
Not quite as fast as the velociraptor, but no slouch, the 2TB Caviar Black with the Piezoelectric 'wrist'. It's the fastest high-capacity drive ATM.
You can get it on goharddrive_com for $100 right now (White label (mediamax))
Hope this helps

The VR or MomentusXT would be quieter.. you could enable AAM but then the Caviar Black's access times go from ~11.5-12ms to ~16ms!

Just wanted to add to the different list of options, the Samsung Spinpoint F3 (HD103SJ), 1TB and is a pretty good performing drive, especially if you're on a budget as well!
With your issue about the SSD, it could just be that one, I personally do not have any issues with my Kingston V-series drive.
Hope this helps with your search!

I do not find Caviar Black 2 TB making any noises in my system.
