The WDs Caviars are very good, got 2 of them here :)

Go for the SATA WD Raptor 74gb if you can

thx ,guys

I wanna state that a 8 mb cache is really expensive for me @ this time

so I will stick to 2mb cache disks

well nobody tried Maxtor b4?

well I did ; it was fine but didn't try W.D or Paracoda myself for enough time

so now what I got is:at least practically W.D takes the lead.

well any other commens?

& plz specify ur experience with them after comparing theoritically coz @ my level (I am not a harware guy)I noticed almost no significant differnces between them theoritically according to their specifications on the site.

Rebates? I'm not in the USA :D

:rolleyes: not there but I wish 2 be there :)

I had WD - HDD 120 GB - 8 MB cach , but it stoped ( dead) . I use it only 6 monthes , I lost about 100 gb Applications + flims +many cool things...

120 gb = 114 Gb ( HAAA) :D

you can use only 114 GB from this HDD > (Formated Data)

using other brand can earn 2 gb more

I am useing Now Maxtor , working better .

but as XtremeMaC and AaronXP said Go for the SATA WD Raptor 74gb if you can . 10000 RPM

I used to work in a computer store. I tried most of those hdds. I think I will go with WDC or seagate.
