    Ok here's an apple to apple comparison of the Hitachi 7k100 100GB version against the 7k200 200GB version. Same system used to test both hard drives, so no variation.

    I also have on order the Samsung 250GB 5400rpm HM250JI coming soon, so I'll add a HDtune benchmark of that soon. See how well it fairs in comparison to the Hitachi series, especially since its a 5400RPM drive.

    Last one is of the Samsung HM250JI 250GB 5400RPM.

    Update:
    Added 80GB Hitachi 7k100 drive and the Samsung 250GB 5400RPM drive.

    And for fun, added the WD Raptor 150GB Drive (10k rpm).

    Heh the Samsung 250GB drive should be here by the end of the week.

    Its actually a replacement, the first one I got had a really loud clicking sound, basically DOA. So getting an exchange on it.

    Wow, thanks Lyshen! I was waiting for those test results to show up. I can't wait till next week when I get my laptop! I'll post the results in HDTune for the Raid 5 array in my laptop. I'll have 3 of the 7k200's in it.

    Oh I realized after rumaging around in my spare parts box. I have the Hitachi 7k100 80GB version too.

    I'll try running HD Tune on that and add the screenshot later. :)

    Awesome performance for a 2.5" HDD. Impressive!

    I have my teeny tiny 250gb WD just sitting it its box waiting for a laptop to put it in. I will merge my data in on this so we can see how the 5400rpm's stack up against the 7200rpm stuff and see if the price gap is worth it.

    Sound good?

    If anybody knows a cheap way to hook it to my desktop (less than 10$ for an adapter of sorts) I'll get right on it because it will be awhile before I have my c90 all put together.

    That 7K200 has awesome performance, thanks for posting. I got a 120GB 5400RPM drive in my ThinkPad and I'm debating whether I should upgrade it or not. If I do the 7K200 will probably be it.

    Were your models the 1.5 or 3.0 interface? I.e the Sata 300 HTS722020K9A300 or the Sata 150 HTS722020K9SA00?

    Just wondering.

    Took a quick look and the 7k200 I have is the Sata 1.5 interface model.

    Wow the burst rate of the Seagate is much higher. But in regards to the transfer rates, the Hitachi is better. Also did you have something else running in the background? That CPU usage seems a bit high. :eek: But still nice performance numbers, much better then 7k100 series.

    Newegg is $6 bucks more expensive than Mwave.

    Currently waiting on the UPS guy to deliver the Samsung 250GB drive. Maybe I'll also try hooking up the WD Raptor drive and bench it for kicks.

    Hrm, I wonder how the 3.0Gb/Sec interface will improve the numbers? Probably not to a noticable degree. Thanks again Lyshen!

    That 120gb 7200rpm seems to get very good scores.

    Ok I have updated the original post with benchmarks from the 80 GB Hitachi 7k100 and 250GB Samsung 5400RPM drive. Oh and for fun, WD Raptor 150GB 10k RPM.

    Looks like the Samsung equals the older Hitachi 7k100 in performance, nice!
