WD only has 1tb green power drive, which is special energy saving/quite drive that supposelly switches between 5400rpm and 7200rpm. I wanted a drive for esata enclosure. this way it generates less heat and less noise. It will be mostly used for back-up of TV shows from the media server. quick test yesterday it seems to have max speed of about 80mb/s

Still, that's a good deal shy of that new WD. I've been thinking of buying a new HDD too, since this array of (relatively) small drives is making more noise and sucking down more power than they're worth. Anyone here have an HDTach score for the new 1TB Samsung drives?
I don't have a single score because I wasn't thinking about it when I installed them. I was planning on RAID 0 from the start so here are 2 of them in an array.

I'm pretty sure they are using a 2 platter design. The less amount of platters the tighter the data is packed onto each one; which means that more data will pass the read/write head per spin. It also looks like they get some type of cache help at about 100GB because that spike is kind of in an odd place.

He didn't post any benchies for the 1TB drive as it won't matter once you put it into the enclosure. Those benchmarks are for the 640GB drives.

@Nekro: So what made you choose the WD640GBs over the 1TB sammys?

cost, those 640gb cost me 105 bucks each, sammy would cost me at least 200+ each.

plust 640gb WD is same speed as 1tb sammy. I might get raid set up one day, but not right now, it would consume to much time. Got the PC setup the way i want it right now.

not sure what you mean "it won't matter once you put it into enclosure" i have not tested the 1tb WD yet, but previously I had 500gb maxtor in that enclosure, and speed didn't differ compared to interior.

Yeah the seagate 7200.10 uses ~180gb platters, so that's why the 320Gb models were so fast when they came out.

I can't believe they doubled the density of platters in only 2 years.
