Desktop hard disks have had to improve over the last five years to keep up with the increasing speeds in processors as well as the speed and size of memory. Games now fun faster thanks to SLI and Crossfire graphics, but what good is that if you have to wait an eternity for your system to boot or games to load thanks to a slow clunky hard disk drive?
Not only has the hard disk had to gain performance, it has also needed to grow in size. Operating systems, multimedia applications, videos, audio files and even games have increased in size over the years, making drives like the 7K1000 almost a necessity if you want to future-proof yourself a bit.
Hitachi has done a great job with the 7K1000 and we find ourselves going as far as saying that it's one of the best hard drives we have had the pleasure of reviewing. While Western Digital's Raptor drives are quick, they are also quite expensive and lack the SATA 3.0Gbps support, making them somewhat ancient in comparison. While 10,000 RPM is nice, we have seen the Deskstar's performance and know it to be almost identical to results we have previously witnessed from 10K Raptors, this thanks to the whopping 32MB of cache onboard and 3.0Gbps throughput.
