did you get the one with 16mb cache? if so, that hard drive rocks! I've seen benchmarks that put it just a few ms slower than a 10,000 rpm wd raptor.

yesh i feel it's a good deal. i got it for 113 so i don't think i slipped ^. only thing i wish is that it was sata 3.0G/s but u kno 1.5 isn't bad at all lol. none the less it's still good a fairly quiet...u don't hear the engine running just the noise from it reading the drive. so yea it's all good ^^ and i doubt i'm gunna use ^ the 250gigs anytime soon! >.>
