Speed Test: Western Digital WD5000BEVT vs Seagate ST9500420AS

xBench disc speed comparison on my unibody 15" MacBook Pro before and after replacing the 5400RPM WD5000BEVT with a 7200RPM ST9500420AS. Pretty impressive, though the speed increase closely correlates to the current price difference on Newegg. Weirdly, the new drive seems quieter. I can't comment yet on heat or battery life effects.

P.S. Changing the drive on these machines is like taking a bath in warm kefir - so easy.

Interesting, Good


I just noticed that with the iPhone 3G (and the 2.0 firmware, in general, I guess?), the iPod application doesn't time out and become unresponsive to the headset clicker. It always annoyed me before, when I paused it with the headset button, if I waited too long, I wouldn't be able to restart the music with another click. I could hear a brief static, as the iPod app went to bed. Now, even after that static - about 15 minutes, maybe - a single click of the headset button brings it back.
