My current system has a Maxtor 60 G 7200 RPM Hd with a 2 Mb buffer. I am going to add a new one and have a master / slave configuration. I can get one of the same for approx. $125 CDN or spend almost twice that amount for a 80G Western Digital with an 8 mb buffer. Is there enough of a performance difference to justify the extra $$ for the WD drive? I don't actually need the extra 20 G.
Tia for your opinions.
