? Concerning Hitachi HDD.

Recommended Posts

I hope I am not out of line with my question here. I want to install a new 250G hdd and have been concidering, amoung others, the T7K250 Hitachi hdd. After eading through the reviews here it would appear as thought the 500G version is the one currently to beat. But what does that say about the 250G version? Is it a whole different beast?

I am looking for a SATA drive to be mated to a ASUS P4C800-E Deluxe mb. It will be used for gaming, surfing and some digital photography.

Your help and/or suggestion are appreciated.

Thanks,

Lon

hiya, im considering buying this hdd too, my understanding is ithat t's distinguished by its 2 platter design, and its among the fastest 7200rpm hdds available. storage review never reviewed it though. :/ 2 drives in the same line but different capacities do not necessarily perform the same, because changes in the design of the hdd could've been incorporated later on.

:P pooh, you are correct and that is why I posed the question. I suppose that the 400-500G drive is the better way to go, but I can't really justify the additional cost for what I am using it for.

I have looked for reviews, but have been unable to find much of anything. So I am in hopes that some of the good people here will comment, either on this drive or another in this capacity size group.
