This hard drive is quick! I bought it a little while ago, whilst looking for a HD around the 30GB area. I bought this drive OEM from Dabs and so cannot comment on its retail packaging. When I bought this drive, about 1 year ago it was brand new and was only available as a 30GB or 60Gb drive, however it has since branched out a bit more and is now available as a 76GB drive as well. Recently, other HD manufacturers have released dives which can beat the cost per pound of this drive, however at the time it was the cheapest available. On to its specs. Well it has the usual “Big drive” 2MB buffer it also has a spindle spin speed of 7200RPM, this makes a ... Read the complete review

Hard drives go bigger and faster and you would hope get more reliable as better manufacturing techniques come into place. IBM have built up a reputation over the last 2-3 years for making fast and very reliable hard drives so this reputation should put them right at the top of your list in the event of you needing more storage space. My personal experiences with "Deep Blue" go back approx 5 years when i was the proud owner of a 3.4 drive. I was amazed at the speed increase over my old western digital drive and it served me very well until i sold it on to a friend. The drive is still going strong to this day with not a hint of trouble. ... Read the complete review

In the ever fast moving landscape of computer hardware the IBM Deskstar 75GXP series is an old dog now. But it will go down in history as a series of harddrives that were the fastest of their era, that were readily available from almost any computer hardware store and that sold at very competitive prices. Those are the positive points in a nutshell. However as there are always two sides to everything these very fast harddrives had to pay a toll for their speed. This series is for certain people renowned for its spectacular failure rate. I've had two models of the series : one of 20 Gigabytes capacity and shortly after that I had the not so brilliant idea of ... Read the complete review

This drive has an excellent spec. 2MB Buffer, 7200RPM, UDMA100 and 8.5 sec access speed, which is the fastest I have seen of an IDE drive! On top of this, it is also one of the cheaper drives available. However, I must warn you of a couple of niggles I have with this product. First, while simply spinning, it is very quiet, however when it is being accessed, it is rather more noisy. My ancient Fujitsu 6.4G was quieter, and most other modern drives are quieter still! Second, the jumper settings are rather hard to understand. If you plan on using this drive as a Master, don't worry, 'cause it is set to this by default. However, if you wish to use it as a ...

The new HD series from IBM is the fastest IDE hardrive availabel yet it is selling for a cheap price. IBM recently launched the 75GXP series. The 75GXP features impressive specification like 8.5ms access time, 7200RPM, 2MB buffer, high-density per platter, etc. Testing by hardware site confirmed that is the fastest IDE hardrive around, taking the top spot from Maxtor's DiamondMax 40+ series. The 75GXP also features the new ATA100 (current HD is ATA66). Though this has little effect on performance, it is nice to have it :-) I recently had the chance to install such unit for a friend. I must it is one of the quietest hardrive I ever encountered. Price ... Read the complete review
