My System Specs


Yeah... I don't know what the deal is with that drive... maybe there's something going on other than the RPM which compensates for the low speed? I can't do a direct comparison, but I sure as hell know there was a huge difference when I initially moved from a 5400 RPM to a 7200 RPM drive.

Slightly smaller 1.5 TB, but how about a WD black instead??? (keeping in mind that Sata3 = 6Gb/s... I sure wish they'd stick to using the same description across the industry)
