Notebook Drives At Up To 160 GB Put Under the Microscope

Samsung HM100JC

Samsung's HM100JC is the largest drive from this manufacturer. Again, it is based on an architecture that supports 60 GB per platter; the family spans the range of 40 to 120 GB. The difference between the other models is its interface - the JC series is based on UltraATA. Performance wise, the HM100JC is quick, but it cannot match the pace of the Seagate Momentus 5400.3.
