Hitachi TravelStar 7K320-320 review
19 March 2009
Excerpt: The TravelStar 7K320 is one of two 2½in disks in this test with a spin speed of 7,200rpm, which should give a boost to performance compared to the 5,400rpm disks. This advantage comes at a price, though, both in terms of cash - the 7K320 costs £16 more than Samsung's 320GB disk - and power consumption. Hitachi quotes a 1.7W consumption when idle, which is over twice that of the other 2½in disks and will deplete a laptop's battery more quickly.
