Bij Adrian's Rojak Pot (?) is een review te vinden van de 22GB grote IBM Deskstar 22GXP. Dit is een 7200rpm HD met ATA/66 interface.Hier heb je een gedeelte uit de review, de rest staat hier.
Hurrah for IBM! They finally corrected their mistake with the 14GXP. Okay... it may not be the fastest second generation hard disk but at least it's much faster than IBM's previous effort. And just because it isn't right at the top of the hill doesn't mean that it's slow. It is a 7200rpm hard disk after all and a second generation drive at that. For IDE users who have long been bound to 5400rpm or slower drives, that's plenty fast enough.
Needless to say, the Deskstar 22GXP isn't for everyone. It's more expensive than a few other second generation 7200rpm hard disks. But when you factor in the costs, remember that you are not only buying speed here. Reliability is important too. I have personally lost, oh... about 50GB of data or so over the last two years and I have hence cultivated a healthy craving for data integrity and safety. So, if plunking extra dough gets me a really reliable drive, I think it's worth every single cent.
Also, don't forget that IBM has a great reputation for service and support. Its tech support people are both helpful and knowledgeable. If your dealer refuses to help you, IBM will be there for you. Just remember, if they treat you well online, most likely they will treat you just as well when the shit hits the fan.
