I plan to put my Outlook's .pst file (now at 3GB size) on a fast performing
 storage as I often search my past emails & it took frustratingly long.  So
in this case, 'read' performance is crucial

1. Seagate Momentus XT ST95005620AS or
(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148591 for US$90)

2. HGST Travelstar Z7K500 HTS725050A7E630
(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822145587 for US$80)

Q1:
Which of the above two HDD has higher IO throughput?
(as I plan to install into my Lenovo X220 : supposedly
 both can fit in, right?
1 was published to have 3Gb/s while 2 has 6Gb/s but
1 has SSD hybrid built in

Q2:
which of the two consumes less power / electricity ?

Q3:
I read most Seagate HDD are now made in China &
thus has poorer MTBF (tends to fails/crash).  Is 1
made in China?


I read Seagate Momentus XT ST750LX003 will be even
faster than the above 2 as it's published to have 6 Gb/s
with double the SSD amt of 1
