Does anybody know if a large capacity 2.5" hdd (let's say 160 GB or 120GB) is faster than a smaller hdd (40, 80 GB)? Of course, I talk about the same hdd series (for example, seagate momentus 5400.3 80 gb and 5400.3 160 gb).
I've heard somewhere that a large capacity hdd is faster in performance than a smaller capacity hdd.
I want to replace my hdd (seagate 4200 RPM, 80GB) with a faster one (thought about seagate 5400.3, 80 GB), and i've found reviews on the internet about seagate 5400.3, but only the maximum production capacity (160GB), and it was impressive. Should these benchmark specs be the same for the smaller capacity hdd?
Does anybody installed in their laptop a seagate momentus 5400.3 hdd, or a samsung spinpoint 5400 RPM hdd? If someone knows the difference in preformance, heating, between these drives, please, share your opinion.
