ZIPZOOMFLY has the 1TB Seagate 7200RPM 32MB Cache SATA Internal OEM Hard Drive for $109.99 with FREE SHIPPING.
Shows 119.99 now.
yeah. was checking it earlier. went to 109 then to 119…guess the demand upped the price. sorry all.
i just got the Samsung 1TB recently for 109.99 on newegg (currently sold out but is 119.99 now)
and from reviews i read the Samsung is better than the Seagate in terms of ‘transfer rates’ but i think ‘seek times’ the Seagate is better.
plus the Samsung is better in the sense that it only has 3 platters vs 4 in the seagate… so less noise/less power consumption/less moving parts… probably (samsung) more reliable… but it’s hard to complain about Seagate in general due to there 5 year warranty’s when everyone else pretty much offers the standard 3.
but in my opinion Samsung in general seem’s to offer quality stuff.
I have a Seagate 1TB drive and it is plenty fast enough for me it runs circles around
any of my other drives lol. Here is some screen shots of HD Tune the Seagate 1TB
kicks the other drives butts.
First up is the Seagate 1TB
Second is the Seagate 250GB
and last and definitely slowest is the Maxtor 300GB
all on mobo SATA11 ports.
just did a scan with HD Tune on Samsung 1TB…
so it appears those claims in that review i read seem to be pretty much true from reading your Seagate 1TB vs my Samsung 1TB… you got better seek times but i got better transfer rates.
