Sadly we can't all afford SSDs, especially not for storing games. Fast HDDs are still necessary, even though SSDs are faster. Besides, I never said it was the fastest, I said it was faster than the Caviar Black...which is true.

As for which is faster, here are some benchmarks: bit-tech.net | Review - Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB Review
Bear in mind that the Caviar Black it shows is the 2TB, which is faster than the 1TB.

Funny, how all three of the pages you posted to are IOMeter (which, aside from being synthetic, also just doesn't like some drives).

How about HD Tach?
bit-tech.net | Review - Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB Review
Or Vista Boot time and Crysis Load time
bit-tech.net | Review - Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB Review
Keep in mind, as I mentioned, that this is the Caviar Black 2TB, which is faster than the 1TB
Lastly, how about FCC?

Looks like the only area it didn't do well in was IOMeter. Funny, how the ones you showed seemed to only show what you wanted.

How the hell is this biased? What AkG one do you trust?

Yeah, this is a little too late to stop. This pretty much happens in every thread we both post on. It's too bad since he's pretty knowledgeable (and I like to think I am too).

...but where's the fun in that?

Sorry, on the other forum I frequent, tangents like this happen all the time, so I'm used to it.

...that was a test? No offense, and I'm flattered, but that's a little bit of a d*ck move.
