Notebook Drives At Up To 160 GB Put Under the Microscope

Samsung HM080JI

The HM080JI is based on a per-platter capacity of 60 GB and is the fastest of the three Samsung drives in this roundup. Based on this model family, Samsung derives 60, 70, 100 and 120 GB capacity points. The Serial ATA interface helps boost the interface throughput, but cannot contribute to speeding up the drive itself.
