Conclusion: I was very impressed by the Samsung SP2504C hard drive. It really does live up to its promise of being ‘quick and quiet’. Its performance is top notch, and the large file performance is faster than any other SATA drive I’ve seen to date. It’s very low noise levels also make it a perfect candidate for a home theatre or silent PC. Please leave feedback and comments our Storage and Controllers forum . Thanks for visiting Short-Media!
Pros: Incredibly quiet, Fastest STR I have seen from an SATA drive to date, SATA 150 jumper option
Cons: Performance with small files on the other hand was a little slower than I would have liked to see, Would have liked to see some more detail in documentation for beginners and less technical users
Samsung SP2504C 250 GB SATA-300 Hard Disk Drive Review
30 March 2006
Summary: This new hard disk drive from Samsung achieved an outstanding performance on our tests. It is a very good hard disk drive for those looking for a 250 GB hard drive using the new SATA-300 interface. In our tests it worked just fine on a SATA-150 motherboard, meaning that you can buy it even if your motherboard doesn’t support the new SATA-300 standard.
Samsung SP2504C - Half a Terrabyte of SATAII RAID 0
2 November 2005
Summary: For this part of the review we are loading up some levels from a few of todays popular games. We've taken a look at Half-Life 2, Day Of Defeat: Source, Battlefield 2, Dreadnought, and Doom 3 to name a few. To get average times for the tests below we broke out a stopwatch and loaded up the game levels a minimum of 3 times - rebooting between each run so that caching was not a factor. After dozen of reboots, we've got a fairly accurate comparison.
Pros: Quiet Operation., Three Year Warranty, SATA II - 3Gbps & NCQ, Don't get hot
Cons: Not as fast in real world as other SATA drives.
Summary: Что ж, в последний год компания Samsung явно активизировала свои усилия по созданию новых моделей жестких дисков для настольных компьютеров. Выпустив в начале 2005 года серию P120 и затем обновив ее пластинами емкостью 125 Гбайт (в старших 250-гигабайтных моделях) компания затем подновила модельный ряд и у серии P80 (моделями с новым интерфейсом, firmware и пр.).
Conclusion: Ele custa um pouco mais do que discos rígidos SATA-150 de 250 GB de outros fabricantes, então fica a seu critério pagar um pouco mais para ter um disco rígido de alto desempenho. Se seu bolso não for chiar ele é uma excelente compra.
