hey...u guys are with me...i'm currently using the 40GB 60GXP...and I'm looking for a bigger one for storage (documents, music, videos, etc)...the reason y i was posting this question because many of the new HDDs like WD, Seagate, Maxtor have really good performace over the 60GXP according to SR and Tom's...so, I'm kinda confused...also, as for "system" drives, is bigger better than smaller?....peace!
The size of the system drive shouldn't really matter. You just want to watch your partition sizes so your cluster sizes aren't too big. I would just look for a drive with good performance all around and it shouldn't be an issue.
That drive sounds promising to tell you the truth. I have played with an eval unit of the drive and it seems pretty sweet. It has upgradablity because of the ATA133 interface being backwards compatible to ATA100, ATA66, and 33. All the drives are equipped with a HDB (hydro dynamic bearing) which seems to make it run cooler and more reliable ...
To say the least I think it will end up being a really nice drive ... I would go for it if I could find one
