After we covered hard disk drives with the highest storage capacity available today in our previous articles, it sounds reasonable now to turn our attention to the other end of the capacity scale. Today we will look at 11 HDD models with 160GB storage capacity from Hitachi, Samsung, Seagate, Maxtor and Western Digital.
Samsung is represented in this review by two devices: the SP1614C model from the SpinPoint P80 series and the HD160JJ from the P80 SD series. The former is not just old, it’s very old. It has twice taken part in our tests already.
The second drive from Samsung is a more interesting thing. It is a refresh version of the old P80 series: old bones, new electronics…
Well, new technologies (SATA-300, NCQ) must be supported, even if just for show. Or you’ll have to be selling your drives at much cheaper prices than the competitors, which is not a good market policy :).
