AVL bracht me een link naar Singapore Hardware Zone waar een harddisk shoutout te vinden is tussen de Western Digital D273BA Expert 27GB, Quantum Fireball Plus KX 27.3GB en de IBM Deskstar 37GP. De WD Expert komt als winnaar naar voren:
There you have it, the best and the worst giants available in the market today. All three drives performed pretty well, although the Quantum Fireball KX Plus could have been better, if not for the cache buffer. The Western Digital Expert series is clearly the better performer of these three drives. If you're looking for a hard drive that incorporates both speed and capacity, look no further. On the other hand, if you want an overall performer and you have a huge appetite for hard disk space, the IBM 37GP is pretty good too. As for Quantum, sad to say, it failed to impress me, and I would consider it only if the price is really attractive.
