    November Hard Drive + SSD Price Guide

    Serial ATA Hard Drive Value

    Just as in the previous PATA chart, we are also taking a close look at our Serial ATA drives and determining exactly which models and capacities offer the best overall value. We do this through the tried-and-true method of determining hard drive value, or "price per GB", which is then used as a sorting criteria to ensure the best $/GB deals rise to the top. 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 brands, speeds and capacities offer the best bang for the buck.

    The top-rated drives in the Serial ATA value chart show considerably different trends, and the best values here skew to the higher-capacity models. Just a look at the top of the chart is enough to tell you this, as the Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 1.5TB behemoth offers an incredible value at only 8-cents/GB. This drive is followed by the Samsung SpinPoint F1 1TB, Samsung EcoGreen F1 1TB and Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 1TB at 10-cents/GB, along with another quartet at 11-cents/GB. The top five SATA drive values all feature 1TB or higher capacities, and in this case, it's clear that bigger is certainly better.
