Be sure to back up your drives, because if crap hits the fan, you are SOL in recovering your data. m 0 l Related resources WD Caviar Black 1TB or Seagate Barracuda 2TB? - Forum 2TB Seagate Barracuda or 1TB WD caviar blue. - Forum WD 2TB Caviar Black or Seagate Barracuda 2TB 7200 RPM?! - Forum Seagate Barracuda vs WD Caviar Black (1TB) - Forum WD Caviar Black 1TB VS.

Went to best Buy to get the Barracuda's hopefully to get them at the price I mentioned, but the store was no longer accepting the $50 off $100 purchase coupons. Well I did walk away with the Corsair Vengeance 16GB (4x 4GB) DDR3 1600 for $45 and will keep the WD's 1TB each which i got for $53 each retail box. It's ok, I may have missed out on the 2TB Raid 0 config for $120, but by the time I fill these 1TB up with photos, I'll just snag a pair of 3TB beasties by then. Not sure if you guys knew about this but: Best Buy Mastercard $50 off $100 deal (expired) m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
