What's the difference between these 2 hard drives ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Can somebody help me to choose between these 2 hard drives.
I wanted to know what's the difference between Samsung Spinpoint 1 TB F3 HD103SJ and Samsung Ecogreen 1 TB HD105SI.
If anyone can tell me what are the Pros and Cons of both of these, it would be very appreciating
Thanks

Eco is more efficient energy wise but, will have a slower performance than the spinpoint.

^ This.

Also, when they aren't working they stop spinning and the access times are very poor because of this. If the drive is for storage of files you won't use a lot the Eco Green is fine but for a boot drive or anything else, the F3 is much better than the Eco Green. It's also one of the fastest drives available if not the fastest.

constant performance wise absolutely nothing, HD103SJ is just manufactured for less cost... so cheaper is better. But yes the eco will slow down when not in use to save power. spinpoint will spin away.
