Nothing wrong with those drives, I just prefer the Greens. Have had great experiences with Greens. Greens are the epitome of Cool, quiet, efficient. Everything I want in a external drive. ;)

Gingerbee, yeah its nice to see a HDD mfg'er enter the 21st century .....and now EVERYONE will part take in the "joy" of misaligned partitions. Another nail in the XP coffin. Though TBH aligning a partition takes almost no time.

The boost in size is a nice bonus....BUT it will be interesting to see how much boost in performance (or loss) this gives. My hunch is writing in 4k blocks may result in a net loss of performance....or atleast until WD gets a handle on this new "tech".
