3D Alpha heeft een review gepost van een erg relaxte HD, de ATA/66 versie van de 7200RPM Seagate Barracuda. Check de review hier.
To begin with, I installed Internet Explorer 5.0 from the hard drive. This was easily the fastest installation of any Microsoft program I've ever experienced. On my old 6GB 5400RPM drive (EIDE, mind you), I usually had to sit and wait for 5-10 minutes for everything to be setup. With the Barracuda ATA, installation was done in about two minutes. File transfers accross the drive were a lot faster than my older 6GB drive. Unfortunately, I did not get benchmark numbers for that drive, as it is now dedicated to Linux. Rest assured, however, the speedup alone is more than worth the price of this drive. Games like Quake II load very quickly and, all other things being equal, with this drive, you'll be in the game before most other players. For my Ultra ATA/66 article, I did some ATA/33 vs. ATA/66 comparison benchmarks, which are applicable here.
