30 hard drives with 250 GB tested
The colleagues from X-bit Labs already put an extremely extensive test online a few days ago, which is probably unparalleled. No less than 30 hard drives from all well-known manufacturers in the connection variants IDE, SATA and SATA II were examined.
Twelve models from Maxtor, six each from Seagate and Western Digital, four representatives from Hitachi and two hard drives from Samsung with 250 GB each were examined more closely. As a result, each model has its advantages, but also weaknesses. The exact results are available from the colleagues at X-bit Labs .
