WD1600AAJS or ...? Tags: Hard Drives Storage Product Last response: May 4, 2007 7:56 AM in Storage Share Sina_Giant April 16, 2007 9:09:34 PM Hi all I’m thinking of selling my current Seagate barracuda 7200.7 120 SATA hard drive and get two new Western Digital WD1600AAJS or WD1600JS and set a RAID 0 config, but my question is: What is the difference between WD1600AAJS and WD1600JS, which one is better?! These two models really confused me and I couldn’t decide. Are there any other better possibilities for the equal budget?! I got a GA-K8NF-9 motherboard, Athlon 64 3200+ and use my PC for gaming most of the time and file transfer rate, reading, writing and loading time for games are of most concern… Thanks More about : wd1600aajs Sina_Giant April 16, 2007 9:26:17 PM Hmm... it seems there was another post asking the same question for the WD5000AAKS version, but in my case I couldn't really figure out what is the difference ?! disposablehero April 16, 2007 9:26:42 PM the AAJS uses a single 160gb platter which increases performance.

Get the answer Sina_Giant April 16, 2007 9:29:48 PM Is there any direct comparison!? choirbass April 16, 2007 9:44:48 PM the WD1600AAJS 8MB is THE fastest 7200 available (its right behind the 1TB hitachi i believe, but that one is also ~$400+)... the only consumer hdds faster, are the raptors, but their price, isnt exactly proportionate to their capacity either dspear April 16, 2007 9:47:34 PM I can't vouch for the results, but here's your comparison benchmarks http://www.silentpcreview.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=30...

Sina_Giant April 16, 2007 9:58:33 PM Thanks so much they really helped me out, now I can choose easily and it seems there is a quite difference between those two models… WiRedPmP May 1, 2007 10:32:25 PM some of the fastest maxtor ata133 can't touch the aajs. It runs fine in solo mode and there isn't really a performance benefit in games w/raid. llate Sina_Giant May 1, 2007 10:54:40 PM Quote:some of the fastest maxtor ata133 can't touch the aajs.
