Can anyone help me make full list of drives available at 1TB or more capacity with 500GB/platter density and 7200rpm speed?

My list consists of:
(1) WD Caviar Black 2TB
(2) Seagate Baracuda XT 2TB
(3) Samsung Spinpoint F3

Are there any others?

The only other one I was able to find was the brand new WD Caviar WD1001FAES-00W7A0 (1TB). I'm confident it will be the best of the current 1TB drives so I just ordered one.

Seagate's entire 7200.12 line has 500 per platter, and is available in 1TB.

Those are the ones that I know of now.

I wish newegg would put that in the specs. I've found myself wondering those things too.

I rarely order from Newegg. I ordered it from Amazon. They had great price, always seem to ship from location in neighboring state no matter where I am, and they list the full part number.

That's excellent. I've always had good luck with Amazon for other purchases, but rarely order from them for computer parts. Happy to hear it's worked well for you though.
