More about which seagate
  1. Take the second. Bigger drive and uses perpendicular recording technology.
  2. If you can, get the 7200.10 300GB, it has fewer platters and higher densities than the 320GB, so it is faster.

    i think is pretty clear...the second bigger hdd .... new technology (perpendicular recoding) allowing bigger data density and less platters used to store data...this means less noise and heat dissipation.....

    i would go for a WD drive ... the big seagate drives are very noisy....(in seek mode they make a very loud noise ... while WD drives are extremelly quiet)...

    I'd stick with the Seagate due to the longer warranty. 5 year versus only 3 year with WD. I will say that Seagate and WD are the only two brands I completely trust however.

    As for the 320 versus the 300, it's really a no brainer. The 320 is bigger, newer and less expensive. What's to ponder here?
  5. Thanks. I'm going to consider WD now. Oh and as to why I asked... i guess the price tipped me off, i thought that maybe the .9 was higher than .10... thanks anyway. :)
