For this price I certainly hope people weren't expecting the latest and greatest 7200.10, not that there is any real difference... and NCQ gives a nice boost.

The size standard for drives is normal accross all manufactures, 1,000,000 bytes = 1megabyte, when it should be 1,048,576 all their small print says so.

After NTFS format this will be about 455gb as would all other 500gb drives.

465gb is what I got from my 500gb drive when formatted in NTFS

Post from another forum, not sure how accurate it is.

Good Drives, good warranty -

from what i understand the 7200.9 series are always quiet, whilst the 7200.10 are quiet when made in taiwan, or loud in made in china....

People are also reporting a high failure rate in the .10's , so i would stick to ordering .9's

Ta for that BritBrat.

Personally I'm waiting for 500s to fall near to 10-12p/gb so I can grab a couple, 750s will fall to the current 16-18p/gb sometime this year, but I want cheaper than the current pricing and don't mind multiple HDs :)
