Any plan to test the newer Hitachi T7K500 which just recently hit the streets? The 7K500 is a last generation product and I am curious how well the new drives perform.

What ever happend to heat and noise comparison? And power consumption? I use big disk in raid5 usually like 8 disks to store data on. 1. reliability 2. noise (heat = more fans = more power and noise) 3. peformance.l Thats how I choose big disks. For pure peformance I go for Raptor or 15k scsi disks anyway.

How can these results be compared to drives of the same family in other sizes? Right now the 320GB drives are a very good balance of $/GB, overall size, and real price. Would the 320GB drive results be the same (relative rankings) as the 500GB results? I am thinking mainly of Seagate 7200.10 vs WD RE2 SATA3.0 in 320GB.

lol, I dived at Sipidan earlier this year, I was so amazed by the place I set up a google alert for "sipidan" - which in turn linked me to your review about the new seagate baracudas - my favourite drives! Better in so many ways than even the WD Raptors IMHO. Thanks for the article, and the memory!

Why testing the old 7K500 and not the new T7K500 series from Hitachi?

great work!

How do the diffent drives stack up in

- performance across the drive (slowest, fastest, weighed average taking into account that 'slowest' is extra punished for each read taking longer too)

- cleanliness in the performance across the drive (spikes, patterns, ups/downs, oscillations)

- true random content with near and far autocorrelation (random blocks, random multiple blocks), to eliminate OS design favouring one or the other type of content and make it truly a shootout between the caching algorithms where they should be handicapped most

- power draw, especially when copying across the same drive

- operational temperature read from the drive, and measured on the outside

Why dont you test with 7200.10 400gb model , which uses 2 platter and has the most highest density of 200 per platter!!

According to Maxtor, Seagate will maintain a line of "Maxtor branded" products. Does this mean they will be Seagate products labeled with Maxtor's name or a different line of products?
