^ Can you explain how that drive is faster than the 32MB I posted?
Because his ego says it is faster.
Seriously, take the drive from the newest series with the biggest cache. Each series of drives is always a bit faster than the previous, and the biggest cache never hurts.
BTW Seagate, WD, Sammy and Hitachi all make excellent HD's. Currently my computer has a WD Raptor plus a bunch of Sammy's. The Sammy's are the quietest drives I have heard.
