If one ignores its capacity slightly lower , the Caviar Blue 640 GB is positioned directly in front of the Samsung F1 750 GB with two 320 GB platters ( see box ), this model is still stronger than the Samsung drive with a maximum throughput on large files of 102 MB / s write and playback cons 92.2 Mb / s. A high score thus allowing Caviar Blue approaching speeds offered by its big brother VelociRaptor (110MB / s).

On the average file size, we observe the same phenomenon with 85 MB / s write and 90MB / s read cons 81 MB / s and 85 Mb / s on the F1. Better yet, the hard drive is more of a silent and thereby serve as a reference with just 38.8 dB (A) measured at rest. In intense activity (read heads scan the hard drive on both sides continuously), it amounts only to 41.4 dB (A), which remains excellent.

It is still possible to reduce noise light by activating the acoustic management. Scratching of heads are less audible and the sound level drops to 39.5 dB (A). Caviar Blue 640 GB is really the king of silence! However, the access time of 12.8 ms Password (0.8m better than the F1) to 16.7 ms (1.4 less than the F1) and flows fall slightly with between 5 and 10 Mb / s loss.

Unlike disks for desktops, laptops are for those subject to greater constraints, including size, consumption and indirectly heat dissipation. According to information gleaned from the Internet, it has more than one string to his bow: very good transfer rate, access time low, moderate consumption, noise and of course contained a storage capacity of "record "for category.
