We would like to introduce to you two new compact 2.5” hard disk drives from Seagate with 7,200rpm and 5,400rpm spindle rotation speed. We are going to compare their performance against 8 other hard disk drives from the same market segment, including the new solutions from Hitachi, Toshiba and Fujitsu. Need more storage space for your laptop? Maybe it’s time to go Seagate…
Now let's take a look at Sequential Writing:
We see a very similar picture when we look at linear writing graph. Just like in the previous case, Seagate Momentus 7200.1 100GB (ST910021A) HDD is the leader. It is noticeably ahead of the others here. The second prize was won by Seagate Momentus 5400.2 120GB (ST9120821A) HDD, which managed to get a little bit ahead of Fujitsu. The next fastest solution is Hitachi Travelstar 5K100 100GB (HTS541010G9AT00), although it turns out slowest than everyone else when it comes to working with smaller data blocks. The last one, Toshiba HDD, was only capable of defeating the hard drive from Samsung.
