10$ is hardly worth thinking about lol but if money is super tight on your build then perhaps 10$ somewhere else could be better but if this is just adding a HD on your own machine and your not sure its worth 10$ more.... that realy depends on what you do
Personaly I would go for it...
I also just noticed this ! they are the same price after mail in rebate.
One word of caution... you have like a 80% chance of getting that rebate it should be 100% and also I made up the 80% part lol well my experience with rebates does tell me its about 80%... you have to fill out the paper work just right
I do take advantages of rebates, but they don't affect what I buy because I already declared that most rebates don't come anyways.
Yeah, those drives are great. I have two of them next to my Raptor, and they're awesome. One devoted to Linux, the other for my documents and other data. Very fast, very quiet, and run nice and cool.
The Samsungs tend to be a little quieter, but because of their spindle design, they lose a little bit of performance. But if you have any kind of fans in your system, you'll never notice the difference.
Well it also depends on what applications you're running on your computer. Say you're running games you might notice a slight performance in load times but that's mostly dependant on the CPU and HDD together.
