    November Hard Drive + SSD Price Guide
    November 30, 2008

    Parallel ATA Hard Drive Value

    The following chart takes a slightly different angle on Parallel ATA hard drive prices, and attempts to discern overall value using a price per GB figure, and then sorting by it. This chart pushes the lowest $/GB rating to the top, and uses a tried-and-true method of illustrating where the best overall values may exist, Of course, no method is foolproof, and other factors like performance or features certainly come into play, but it does give us a different view on which hard drive brands, speeds and capacities offer the best bang for the buck.

    The Parallel ATA value chart continued its existing trends, and we again find a range of drive capacities making up the top ten listing. November didn't change the status quo, and we still find the best deals sitting in the 320GB to 750GB range. After a big price drop, the Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 750GB takes over as the top PATA value at an amazing 12-cents/GB, and this was followed by last month's champ, the Western Digital Caviar SE 500GB at 15-cents/GB. In terms of the overall makeup of the top-ranking PATA drives, there were four 500GB and three 400GB models in the top ten listings.
