New Harddrives


Recently I’ve got myself two new harddrives. I’ve always sticked to Western Digital in the past, but I didn’t find a good offer this time. I’ve found the HD103UJ from Samsung but at first I hesitated because there were reports of high failure rates, obviously in one of the first charges. In the end I’ve got myself two of these and am pretty happy with them. Transfer speed is ok and they stay really cool. About 36°C after several hours of operation with steady cooling. Since the IBM 307030 I’ve always equipped my HDDs with active cooling.
