Samsung SpinPoint P40

Recommended Posts

Cool! Another new review!

About the low noise: while the drive may start out quiet, it still may get louder over time. The 20GB Samsung I got a couple years ago started out dead silent but after being powered on for over a year straight the idle noise is definitely more noticeable than it was (it's still pretty quiet). I guess this is a potential problem with any non-FDB drive, just thought I'd mention it.

Samsung is the only manufacturer so far releasing 5,400-RPM 60GB platter drives. Though they cannot beat most of the lastest 7,200-RPM drives, they generate less heat and less noise.

Will Maxtor also continue to make 5,400-RPM drives with 60GB platters?

Maxtor is way ahead than any other company in Disk Platter technology, they had the 80GB Platters for display and they will be on sale very soon.

Now they should develop some reliability to their drives as well :P:P:P
