SSDSA2MH080G1GC 80GB compatibility review

The Intel SSDSA2MH080G1GC 80GB is a hard disk drive, which means it stores data using quickly rotating disks, or platters, that can be read and written on via the moving actuator arm. Hard disk drives generally have a large storage capacity, and so are perfect for large amounts of data. The potential performance is well below that of solid-state drives, but they can definitely still hold their own. The Intel SSDSA2MH080G1GC 80GB is a good example of a high performance hard disk drive, and should complement any PC build as a primary storage device.

At a speed of 0 RPM, the hard disk drive spins at a very slow speed. This speed should be avoided entirely unless used as a dedicated storage system, as the resulting performance would be infuriatingly slow.

With a capacity of 80GB, the Intel SSDSA2MH080G1GC 80GB has a tiny amount of storage space for an hard disk drive. Using the SATA 2.0 3Gb/s interface this hard disk drive will not be limited by its connection with the motherboard, and there is currently no real reason to choose SATA 3.0 over SATA 2.0 for a mechanical hard disk drive (SSDs are another matter).

A form factor size of 2.5" is standard for laptop drives and solid-state drives, and this will fit into any 2.5" drive bay. These drive bays are not yet ubiquitous, but it will also fit into a standard 3.5" or 5.25" drive bay with the appropriate adapter.
