a rule of thumb is always get the newest tech for you money , im not sure were your located but im in canada and on average the difference for the 16mb cache vs 32 mb cache is always like a couple bucks difference . S o you mite as well spring for the 32mb cache , if this is your first time purchasing a 16 or 32 your going to be impressed either way cause that means you had an 8mb or even worse 2mb cache drive that was slower for sure good luck .. i like seagate because there fast cheap and have a longer warranty then WD !!
