I just thought that was common knowledge i guess
wait do you mean compared to an ssd?
but that makes no sense because all harddrives are slower then ssds, its like giving the z97 pc mate board from msi a bad rating because it has less features then the x99 strix from asus.
You are correct. I think I look at star ratings different than you. I use star ratings for how the overall performance of that hard drive. Not the performance of that hard drive compared to others in its class. Does that make sense? I am using it completely wrong but that is how i use it.
ok, the problem is that some people might know what the speed of hard drives are like but they still need one, and they are looking through all the hard drives and one drive has a worse review even though its just as good as the other drives, see what I mean?
