Hard disk drives are today's fastest permanent storage media and have a large capacity. For this two reasons they are the most used storage medium in computers and servers. When buying a new hard disk, there are three important things to consider:- The connection of the disk to the computer or other device you will be using it with has a big influence on the speed with which data can be read from/written to the disk. Make sure the connection of the disk you buy is compatible with your computer!- The rotational speed is also important for the speed with which data can be read from/written to the disk and determines the time it takes to find a file on the disk.- Last but not least, the storage capacity of the disk, i.e. the amount of data that can be stored on the disk.

We would have reviewed this drive much earlier, but Hitachi did not send a review sample right away. Hence the Travelstar 5K500 has been on the market for a few months now; it is still Hitachi’s top model, though. As it is based on a three platter design and a height of 12.5 mm, it will not fit into many mainstream notebook designs that require 9.5 mm drives...

Laptop hard disks have always been smaller than their desktop counterparts, but capacities are steadily increasing. Hitachis Travelstar 5K500 is the first to have an impressively large capacity of 500GB, which is just as large as all but the most g...

Mit 500 GB gehört die Hitachi Travelstar 5K500 zu den Speicheriesen unter den 2,5-Zoll-Festplatten. Wir prüfen, ob das Laufwerk auch beim Tempo Größe beweist. Bei 2,5-Zoll-Festplatten üblich sind zwei Datenscheiben. Um die hohe Bruttokapazität von 5...

The maximum throughput of almost 63 MB/s is also only average: Hitachi’s single platter Travelstar 5K320 is faster at almost 65 MB/s. However, the three platter Travelstar 5K500 is as efficient as Hitachi says: the manufacturer states that it is proud of maintaining almost the same power envelope for this model as that of its 320GB predecessor...
Bottom line We have seen several new records during the testing for this review. Hitachi and Samsung are the first to offer 500GB hard drives in the notebook space. Samsung breaks a throughput record by getting close to 80 MB/s with the HM500LI. However, it also...
