My Hitachi is quick

by A PC builder on 1/11/2005

I bought this drive because of a hefty rebate. The Death Star nickname has not escaped me, and the drives' reliability has caused me to RMA Hitachi within the 3 year warranty in the past. However, this is the fastest hard drive I've ever used. The HD Tach software shows this, 97 or 98 megs per second peak transfer rate and an average rate of 46 to 49. The boot time is noticeably shorter than my 80 GB Western Digital with the same 8 MB cache. The PC is an NForce2 Athlon rig with a 1.9 GHz chip and 512 MB of PC3200 RAM. For an older machine, it screams.
