Not familiar with wdiddle, can someone fill me in? I'll have also to see about the 4k sector format & Linux kernel compatibility. I found this quote so far from a WDC community post.

"4K/Advanced format is only implemented on "EARS" models with 64mb cache......WD15EADS is 32MB cache and it's the old model without the 4K/Advance format!"

Any Hitachi or Samsung fans as they are usually on sale?
