Hitachi Travelstar 7K500-500 review
26 February 2010
Excerpt: Laptop hard disks with a spindle speed of 7,200rpm used to be considerably faster than their cheaper 5,400rpm counterparts. As hard disk data density has increased, this difference has lessened considerably as more data can be read in a single revolution of the disk. As a result, 5,400rpm disks are the most popular, as they use power, making Hitachi's 500GB Travelstar 7K500-500 the first 7,200rpm laptop disk we've seen in a while.
