14 1TB hard drives compared

Posted on Saturday, March 21 2009 @ 15:00:35 CET by

X-bit Labs has published another big storage roundup, this time they've taken a look at 14 HDDs with a capacity of 1TB from Hitachi, Samsung, Seagate and WD. You can check it out over here.
In fact, we could have written a review (or even several reviews) of 1-terabyte drives a long time ago. But being perfectionists, we wanted to accumulate a full collection of drives with 333GB platters. It is Hitachi’s drives that made us wait the most. Announced in July 2008, the Deskstar 7K1000.B series reached us in January 2009 only.

This wait is over now and we can exhaustively cover the topic of hard disk drives with 333GB platters. It’s high time we did this since 500GB-platter models are already coming up (e.g. Seagate ST31000528AS). Before we describe the drives we are going to test, we’ll remind you of the events that have happened in the 1-terabyte sector recently.
The reviewer concludes the WD RE3 (WD1002FBYS) is the fastest 1TB HDD, followed by the somewhat slower but much cheaper WD Caviar Black (WD1001FALS).
