I'd have to say the 1TB Samsung Spinpoint F1 Series followed by the 1TB Western Digital at this time.

Good luck getting those things to run on a normal desktop system. Besides, they're loud as ****.

Meh, I ran a raid 0 across 4xSeagate 300GB 15k rpm (16mb cache) on a Perc5/9550SXU/and an LSI Logic SAS Controller.
The drives aren't that loud, much quiet than my Raptors and the performance blows raptor's away even in a single drive configuration.

But in reality, all HDD's are slow. All your HDDs are belong to us!
As long as we'll have spinning dics as storage medium, they'll never be fast enough.

At a fraction of the size and 1/2 the lifetime. ::(:

Solid state drives need to come a little ways further.

But yeah, easily faster. ::D:

Remember jAkUps vids of XP booting on that RAM drive?

Outclassed by the newer 7200RPM drive, particularly the Sammy Sungs. Not surprising. The current Raptors have been for a long time.

Then will we see any real benefit over magnetic drives? Apart from shock resistance?

there are two other benefits of SSD drives.

1) constant speed, where HDD may max out at 120mb/s (sammy f1 drive), but lowest speed at the end is about 70mb/s. SSD disc have constant speed, if i remember correct fastest SSD has speed of about 90mb/s

note: average speed of Sammy F1 is about 90mb/s

2) faster access time


dis-advantage

1) price, crazy expensive

2) shorter lifespan then HDD currently

3) compared to HDD, very low capacity

SSD will be good, but not now, give it about 5 years.

So yeah SSD later, what's the hot drive now? F1 by Samsung? Planning on Raiding with it for more speed yet.
