why does this review only compare it to crap HDDs?

throw in some 10k rpm HDDs and some SSDs. the review is too limited without these.

How is it fair to compare it to a 10K drive or a SSD? The read and write won't be the same. You compare the drive to similar revolution drives. Get real...

i wonder if its possible to do that seagate tweak where you limit the maximum space available to attain speeds comparable to the 10K raptors. im sure you guys know what im referring to.

its still a good idea. its not to say that this drive is crap, but its a great way for someone to determine if its worth getting an SSD, 10K, or 7200. though, for anyone wanting a 2TB drive, i doubt theyd consider much else.

If you're looking for a 2TB HDD, correct me if I'm wrong but, you're looking for storage space not speed. If you want speed then go grab yourself a 32-64GB SSD, or make yourself a raid 5 or 10 with these drives.

Exactly. If you need a decently fast drive with a ton of storage, go for this one. If all you need is speed, then a SSD is better.
