Re: samsung spinpoint f1 and f3 hard drives
I believe I have an F1. I can't remember. Just got myself 2 WD Blacks (1TB each) to do a RAID1. I then put my F1 in my friends build. It runs INCREDIBLY quiet and INCREDIBLY cool. Though, that could be specific to my system. You never know. Honestly, if there's that much difference in price, I'd check around for a 1TB Western Digital Caviar Black or a Seagate 1TB. I've had good luck with all three HDD brands I've listed in this post.
