Good price for a storage drive but too great for a boot drive - don't be fooled by the large cache this is still one of the slower eco / green drives. For speed it's the WD Blacks, Seagate 7200.12s or Samsung F1s you should be looking for.
#2
Are these any good for a Popcorn hour?
#3
Anyone know if I could replace a 1Tb drive in a WD World Edition (network) drive with one of these? I found a link on how to open the unit but not sure if the board in the device will support any size (or make) of drive. Would really prefer a 2Tb too.

Never mind, found out myself, apparantly these are highly recommended for PCH :)

" Work perfectly with latest firmware ([A-110] Firmware 01-17-090204-15-POP-403 (01.06.2009)), up and running in around 30 minutes. Very quiet! "

"Green technology".

Bandwagon jumping bullsh1t alert.

Voted hot, as it is much more expensive elsewhere, but the Samsung F2 is slightly cheaper (£75.98 at Scan) so worth considering too.

I suppose it all depends if you're the kind of person who cares at all about shaving a few seconds off your boot time... :whistling:

If you were then you would buy a raptor.

I don't rate "green" drives much though. They are only a few % more efficient than the normal ones e.g. WD blue.

I'd go with a raid setup. A WD VR 300gb costs around £175. A pair of 500gb 7200.12 costs £76 leaving you plenty of cash for a MB upgrade to one that supports raid if yours doesn't. Or if it does a 1TB drive (£54) and run raid 10 for maximum safety.:thumbsup:
#14
O god, I recently bought two of these not knowing about the 'green' factor. I'm going to return them, these really are quite slow -_-
#15
these are ideal as data drives. Going to buy one for my HTPC.

Damnit... I bought 4 of these last week. lol
