Which is the fastest HDD write speed for a 1TB 7200 HDD to buy right now? I've seen on the benchmarks and the Samsung barracudas seem to come out on top on write speed, But how come the barracuda's are cheaper than the Caviar blacks? I'm interested in high write speed to use as a secondary drive for fraps.
I dont know which one to buy for the max write i can get for fraps. Caviar blacks are more expensive then the "Highest write speed 7200rpm Barracuda's"
Yeah you didnt exactly specify a price, but the VeolciRaptor's dominate HDD's. If you wanna save money just put two HDD in a raid 0 or raid 10 config and you will be fine.
I just want a single drive. And I dont wanna spend that much on a Velociraptor.
I dont understand why the Seagate Barracuda 1TB is only £68.00 when the Caviar black 1TB is £88.99 and the Read/Write of the Seagate is much better. Would the seagate be the better choice for fraps?
Is the 20 difference worth it to you in terms of warranty? If not, go for the cheaper Seagate.
If you consider the 20 difference a good investment for the extra 4 years - go for the WD Black.
Just be warned - if your seagate craps out after 1 year, you will not get a replacement.
Edit: By the way, any modern 7200RPM HDD is capable of writing FRAPS information easily.
My current other drive isnt modern its getting 70 Write which isnt enough for Full HD 1080p I need about 140-200 really, So i think the barracuda would be a better choice over teh caviar because of the higher write speed.
