Bij GamePC ligt een review klaar van de Seagate Cheetah 18LP Ultra160 harddisk. Deze bikkel beschikt over een cache van 4meg en maakt 10.000 omwentelingen per minuut. Hieronder wat meer info over zijn perormance:
The drive performed like it should without any problems. Though posting decent numbers in Sandra, the 18LP fell behind the Atlas 10K in ZD's Winbench99. Which only shows that Winbench did not fully use the 4MB cache on the Seagate. In the long run, the 18LP is still a pretty decent choice if you run data intensive programs, in which the 4MB cache should work in nicely. In terms for best bang for the buck, the Atlas 10K is still on top. But with the announcements of 15K RPM drives on the horizon, we wonder if 10K will still be worth the price. Many 10K drives are still a little pricey side and who knows where 15K drives will start off at. Hopefully the 15K RPM drives may bring down the price on 10K RPM drives making them more affordable. All in all, the Seagate 18LP 9GB Ultra160 drive did well enough to where we only recommend it in certain applications/occasions. But for now, anybody just wanting the best while still not going overboard should stick with the Atlas 10K line from Quantum.
