Which HDD - (500GB) F3/Baracuda/Caviar Black

Recommended Posts

raid-o or short stroke isn't gonna matter. Access time (combined with throuput of course) is where it's at with SSD's and you aren't gonna touch 0.1ms with any mechanical drive.

Wouldn't short stroking improve access times?? I know that Raid-0 doesn't (hence why I don't bother with that anymore). and likewise SSD's cant touch the gb/$ ratio mechanical drives :yucky:

SSD addiction is getting almost too much to take. I just can't justify paying the price for a SSD yet. WD RE's are a little more expensive than Caviar Black, but the I/O and read/seek time is definitely worth it.
