Curious: I see where the 640 black is the drive of choice for a lot of guys, and I have one myself, but what makes it so special? I mean mine seems as fast as my old raptor 150 that I recently sold, so is that it?

exactly, as the folks said.. it has higher density platters, and only two.. so less spin and seek, hence faster speed. Ive got two in RAID0, its blasting any raptors :-D
