  1. The F3 is both cheaper and faster. There is a new WD 1TB model that has 500gb platters, its not the FALs, its the FAEX.

  2. As said above, the WD FALS doesn't have 500 GB platters....

    Check out the performance charts and pick whatever 500 GB per platter drive performs best under your usage patterns. The 2 TB WD Black and XT from Seagate are good choice but at smaller capacities, you are limited to the Seagate 7200.12 or the Spinpoint F3. The 7200.12 excels in gaming, multimedia and pictures whereas the F3 wins at music and movie maker. See the comparisons here (copy past link in manually, link won't work in forum):
