Samsung Spinpoint F1 Desktop Class HD753LJ 750 GB: Dependable
12 July 2010
Summary: Dont skimp on your hard drive. The hard drive is the single biggest bottleneck on desktop performance. Opening programmes and manipulating files is not governed by your processor your RAM or (as someone once said to me) by your uber-expensive graphics card. Lesson from this; put some thought into which one you buy, and dont go for the 'green' versions of drives if you want a decent amount of performance.
Summary: I've got several of these things. They were purchased for a mere $99USD each. Considerably cheaper than other drives of the same capacity (which usually have less cache, are louder, and slower!)($110-135). These hard drives are faster than my other ones, have a larger cache, as well as being a lot quieter. I can't hear them in my case. For the price, these things are an amazing bang for the buck.
