Odd, that drive is 5400RPM.

Here is a performance comparison I made between HDD, SSHD and SSD.

SSHD - Performance comparison with HDD and SSD

Gary, The 2.5" SSHD drives all seem to be 5400RPM. Probably a heat problem for the laptops.

SanDisk 128GB Solid State Drive

$69.99 That's $10 lower than normal street price.

After several months with these hybrid drives I see a improvement when used as a OS drive, but not as much when used as a data drive. Obviously.

I'm curious what I can achieve with USB 3.0 transfer speeds using the latest cards and controllers. I have a RocketU 1142A pcie to usb 3 card in my new build. The tests I have seen look very promising.

Highpoint info is going to show it in the best possible light.

Independent review. This AnandTech review convinced me to try a pair of SSDs configured in RAID 0.

Two of these SanDisk 128 ssd's would give you a 256gb RAID 0 super ssd drive.

More like a power consumption issue. 7200rpm spinners are thirstier, powerwise.

I saw this post on another web site. It was posted 18 hours ago so, I don't know how long it may last.





"Micro Center is selling core i7 @ $249.99 and core i5 at $179.99 These are 4770K & 4670K.
You can price match them on NCIX or Fry's".

More power inevitably means more heat. I don't think power per se is the real issue. The PSUs should be able to deal with that.

It matters when your computer is running off a battery.

That could be Wolfgang, these are now out of stock. I have the 750GB version in a caddy, never put it on a laptop. My laptop does have a standard 7200RPM HDD.

Hmm, that one is expensive. I paid $89 for my 1TB Seagate - it was on sale. I use it mainly for images and other backups in an open USB3 caddy.

My WD wd2500bevs came with my Dell LT, it's a 5400 rpm drive and is rated at 5v and 0.55a
My Seagate Momentus XT is 7200rpm and rated 5v and 0.58a
The Seagate Momentus XT runs 2-3 degrees cooler in my LT compared to the wd2500ebvs. You would think just the opposite. Both drives are physically identical.

I opened a new Dell Inspiron 17R I ordered for a customer last night and see it has a 5400 rpm drive. I see all the Dells with HDD's are 5400 rpm.
