What do you consider fast? Access times or transfer rates?

HDD: 15k Seagate Cheetah
SSD:
-SATA: Intel 520 Series
-PCIE- OCZ-RevoDrive 3

If you are looking for a hard drive for your computer, I would highly recommend getting a SSD, ridiculously fast access times makes programs boot faster....much much faster.

I prefer one with faster access times. I know SSD's are really fast, but I'm limited to a budget, and I want something with a lot of storage and speed without breaking my wallet.

What kind of capacity are you looking for? I've got a couple 500GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.12s and I love them (Link). I've got a couple in RAID 0 in my rig now and they seem to get fast speeds. I just hate the current prices of them... I got 2 for the price of 1 right now.

You'd be much better off just getting an SSD. The 15K drives are going for $400-500 depending on where you look, and that a 600GB disk. That and you'd need to get a real controller card because they are SAS drives.

I've got 4 15K drives in my server, granted there a bit old, but in RAID5 they pull 250MBPS and 5-7ms access times biggrin.gif
