    Notebook Drives At Up To 160 GB Put Under the Microscope

    If you care about the performance of your notebook hard drive - and we hope you do - there are only two possible choices today. Users who want it all should go for a Hitachi TravelStar 7K100, because it is by far the fastest notebook hard drive available. Should you require more capacity, the only feasible choice is Seagate's Momentus 5400.3, because it merges 160 GB capacity with the highest available 5,400 RPM performance. In addition, Seagate offers an unmatched five-year warranty.

    Lots of drives tested and many performance tests, but:

    No temps recorded
    No power draws taken
    No noise readings

    By the way, what does BTW stand for?

    It is better to be tried by 12, than carried by 6.
