Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
The Hard Disk Drive Short Stroke Guide - The Hard Disk Drive Short Stroke Guide
Thu, October 21 2010 | 3:43PM | PermaLink Feedback?
When we wrote the article, Modding A Barracuda 7200.11 Into A VelociRaptor, a number of readers insisted that we were wrong and the LBA mod works. Perhaps they didn't read it properly - the article was not written to dismiss the concept of short stroking a hard disk drive to improve its performance. Far from it. We were merely pointing out that it was misleading to say that short stroking a Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 will turn it into a Western Digital VelociRaptor. Short stroking will not magically turn a 7200 RPM drive into a 10,000 RPM drive. As we pointed out in our article, that perception is somewhat illusory as the physical characteristics of the "modded" drive remains the same. However, short stroking will improve performance in certain situations... and believe it or not, most of us are actually short stroking our hard disk drives without knowing it. Surprised? We will clarify it all in this guide.

Intel X25-M G2 80GB Solid State Drive - Intel X25-M G2 80GB Solid State Drive

"Intel has been dominating the performance CPU market since the release of its Core 2 Duo chips several years ago, but there's another sector of the market the firm has also been quietly attempting to conquer; Solid State Storage. Intel's current consumer-focused drive is known as the X25-M (GM2); with the M standing for "mainstream". Today we will be looking at the 80GB variant."
