Real Gentlemen: Performance IDE Hard Drives

Disk Temperature

In terms of temperature, the performance drives got quite hot this time. Please consider the lab temperature of 26°C instead of 21-23°C that we normally have. Hence it's safe to discount 2 or 3 degrees from the test result. Anyhow, the new drives are still hot ones, and it's likely part of the trade-off in having quieter drives.
