My System Specs

Default

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)

Western Digital WD1502FAEX Caviar Black 1.5TB SATA3 7200RPM 64MB Cache Internal Hard Drive OEM - Western Digital WD - WD1502FAEX
