Fastest HDD (not ssd) - Page 4

post #31 of 45
+1 for F3 1TB. I have mine in raid 0. I get 180MB/s sustained Write and about 160MB/s read. They have about 800GB of data on it right now.

Momentus XT or WD Caviar Black.

The Blacks are really speedy. Have both my desktops equipped with one and they boot right into a useable state of Windows in under 30 seconds.

On the slightly more expensive side of things, 2tb Black's are faster than all but the new velociraptors when limited to plain SATA.
On the less expensive side of things, the 500GB Momentus XT by seagate is supposedly equivalent in speed to a 300gb velociraptor and is a lot quieter.
Spinpoint F3/F4's cannot be gone wrong with either though.

I love how people are still voting for VR. The OP said NO RAPTORS...lol

My vote goes for the F3 but the RE4 is a nice drive just a little pricey.

if you only need 30GB.... why not SSD? Or does it really matter on what drive since it is a media server?
