My System Specs

Thanks for the reply.

I've decided to go with the Barracuda XT.

Truth is, I actually bought a ST2000DM001 2 and a half months ago, and I've been wrestling with Seagate support for the past 2 months trying to get rid of that chirping noise, then trying to update firmware to no avail, and finally getting multiple bum replacements.

It looks like the first iteration of the 1TB/platter / Advanced Format+7200RPM has been a bumpy transition, at least for Seagate. They agreed to swap it for a new XT instead, which I think is a pretty good deal, and I should be able to ride out the 3 year warranty until they work out the kinks and I need to upgrade.
