I am looking forward to buy a 500 GB hard drive. I haven't had a very good experience with my previous Seagate 7200.11 1TB hard drive. I was thinking of going for WD Black's but they are relatively expensive to Seagate 7200.12 500 GB. wonder how good the 7200.12 are after Seagate's infamous problems with 7200.11
On a side note : How better is x3 500 GB raid 0 setup than a x2 500 GB raid 0 apart from the capacity perspective ?
