I just read that aparantly, as bit density goes up, RPM is no longer the whole story with regards to drive performance so this begs the question:

what are there specs comparing:

1 WD Scorpio 320GB 7,200RPM
2 Hitachi 7K320 320GB 7,200RPM
3 Samsung M6 500GB 5,400RPM

(9.5mm is my maximum drive height hence these three choices)

I'm particularly interested in how performance (I/O and power) differs between the 5,400rpm 500GB samsung and the Hitachi 7K320 (as the hitachi is supposedly faster than the scorpio although I've not had that confirmed)

Thanks!
