  1. Hello,
    nice review! By the way, i can confirm Samsung has been shipping the HM250JI some time. I am using it in my Dell D620 since one week.

  2. nightyy, how does the Scorpio WD2500BEVS compare to the Samsung HM250JI ?
  3. Well,

    i can only compare it to my former Seagate Momentus 5400.3 SATA 160GB (ST9160821AS). I feel the HM250JI to be slightly more silent and less hot but could not note a difference in performance.
