Five 2.5-inch 500GB HDDs compared

Posted on Monday, June 08 2009 @ 01:25:17 CEST by

The Tech Report has taken a look at at five 2.5" hard drives with a capacity of 500GB from Hitachi, Samsung, Seagate and Western Digital. The winner of the test is the WD Scorpio Blue 500GB as this drive delivered the best overall performance.
So what about those 500GB mechanical notebook drives? Today, they're available for between 26 and 17 cents per gigabyte. Most will set you back less than a c-note, which, in the SSD world, buys just 32GB. The fact that traditional hard drives offer better value, on a cost-per-gigabyte basis, than SSDs is certainly not surprising. Solid-state drive prices may be falling, but they still have a long way to go. What is surprising is the fact that the highest capacity 2.5" mechanical hard drives on the market are so inexpensive.
