Only 280?? Isn't this like 50$ over the WD and 80$ over the hitachi?

I still not touch seagate drives, since 7200.11 days. I got tired of RMA to them for 35 HDD in 4 months time.

Personally I'd rather save $100 and go w/ their 3TB external.

The 3Tb "external" version of the 3TB XT is a cut down drive (half the cache, etc etc). Its main goal is size, with low noise and low heat output. As an owner of the 3tb XT external it does amazingly well at these goals...but I wouldn't want to use it as my "OS" drive (its actually my "M" data drive in my main rig). THIS drive on the other hand looks to be VERY sweet and looks to be one fast drive. :)

YMMV

I'm personally fine with 2TB drives and love the fact that they are so cheap now.

7200.11 was mostly faulty in the 1TB batch between November to January of 2009.

Seagate makes great drives and not like companies such as Hitatchi or WD or anyone out there didn't have an issue.

I save a whole bunch of cash and go WD / Hitachi
