    Default Hdd rpm

    I was browsing newegg and came across multiple HDD with 15k rpm or 10k rpm. I was wondering what the advantages of this was, and how they were compared to SSD.

    Thank you in advance.

    The price was the main difference, it was over a dollar a gb, none of the 15k RPM drives on newegg were SATA, they were all SAS so unless you get an enterprise mobo it is unlikely you would be able to use them. How do SSDs compare? They are about a dollar a gb or less, they are SATA and they're probably faster.

    A regular platter drive at 10.000 or 15,000 RMPs will never come close to the speed or performance of a SSD, but something like the new WD 1TB Velociraptor would make a really good storage drive. You could use a SSD like the Vertex 4 256GB that we reviewed yesterday for your main drive.

    By the way, Newegg has the Vertex 4 256GB on sale for $199, once you enter Promo Code: ​EMCNDHB35
