Hard Drive Performance Comparison

I have had many people ask me what is the difference between the Seagate ST31000528AS hard drive and the Seagate ST31000524AS hard drive.

The only real difference is performance.
They are both considered high quality hard drives.

He is a simple comparison:

Seagate ST31000528AS
Series Barracuda
Interface SATA 3.0Gb/s
Capacity 1TB
RPM 7200
Cache 32MB
Average Latency 4.16ms
Form Factor 3.5 inches

VS

Seagate ST31000524AS
Series Barracuda
Interface SATA 6.0Gb/s
Capacity 1TB
RPM 7200
Cache 32MB
Average Latency 4.16ms
Form Factor 3.5 inches

So the only real difference between the two Seagate Barracuda hard drives is the Seagate ST31000528AS has a read / write speed of 3.0Gb/s while the Seagate ST31000524AS has a read / write speed of 6.0Gb/s.

Obviously I would prefer the faster hard-drive but both are high quality and reliable hard drives.
