The mid-2007-vintage 160GB Seagate Momentus 7200.2 is a dithering performer by comparison to 2008-vintage 320GB drives. See the results for the Hitachi 320GB Travelstar, which average about 40% faster.

If you have this drive or other vintage 2007 drive in your MacBook or MacBook Pro, upgrade it now to the Hitachi 320GB Travelstar for about $89 after rebate.
