AGN Hardware heeft net een review van de 13GB grote Quantum Fireball CR klaar. Hij draait op 5400rpm, 9.5ms access time en heeft 512kB cache. Hij wordt vergeleken met de Western Digital Caviar, ook 13Gb, en dit kwam eruit:
I was very surprised at how the Quantum CR drive consistently outperformed the Western Digital drive. Not once did it finish in second place! I have no reservation in declaring the Quantum CR 13.0 GB the hands-down performance winner in this head-to-head review.
If 13.0GB is the capacity that you are looking for, I recommend choosing the Quantum Fireball CR over the Western Digital Caviar. Both drives boast the same specifications and carry the exact same cost; however, the Quantum outperformed the Western Digital in every test. The only drawback to choosing the Quantum is that it is slightly louder than the Western Digital, but if performance is all you care about, by all means, go for the Fireball.
