hey experts ; I want ur help
wanna buy P-ATA IDE hard disk which one 2 choose?
the most available here (not buying via Internet) are
Maxtor diamond plus 9 7200 RPM
W.D Caviar 7200 RPM
Seagate Paracoda 7200 RPM
they r almost the same price (2-3% difference)

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.

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)
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
