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.
Drives Tested:
  • Fujitsu MHV2120AH: 120 GB UltraATA
  • Fujitsu MHV2120BH: 120 GB SATA
  • Fujitsu MHV2160BT: 160 GB SATA
  • Samsung HM040HI
  • Samsung HM080JI
  • Samsung HM100JC
  • Seagate Momentus 5400.3
  • Toshiba MK1234GAX: 120 GB UtraATA
