Leaderboard Movement

The StorageReview Leaderboard has been updated, taking the latest reviews under consideration:

Addition to the Entry-Level Slot

Because it still runs a bit over $100, Samsung's 500-gigabyte SpinPoint T166 does not quite qualify as a true "entry-level" drive in the eyes of many. Nontheless, it combines leading performance with the quietest operation one can ask for in a 3.5" drive and comes highly recommended.

A New Notebook Champion

It's pricey, yes, but the Travelstar 7K200 offers world-beating performance, resting above the competition in a league of its own. The 7K200 stands as the only true choice for users seeking desktop-level capacity and performance out of their notebooks.
