Woo hoo, yet another 2TB drive.... unless it's priced well ($180 or so) it makes a lot more sense to RAID0 1TB drives...

is that the green one, from what I can tell, the one WD has released only spins at 5400rpm, hence this being the first 7200rpm. Not that it really matters, once you get over 1TB your aiming at storage and not speed as much

I applaud Hitachi for releasing a 2TB 7200 drive.

I am hoping that all drive manufacturers use 64 MB cache on 2TB HDD and above.

The use of a 64 MB cache should also use appropriate technologies to take advantage of the mass of cache memory.
