Why do you think the seagate is so much slower that the Hitachi?

I doubt I've ever managed to fill half of my 250 so this goes beyond what I'd need, but I've got to ask......

How long does it take to format a 1T drive??????

Nice review there!

Damn... thats a hell of HDD. Just got myself a WD500GB Sata2 and i think it'll be enough. Way enough. Had a 250GB before and it was full. Had a 80GB as backup which was also full. So i aimed at something bigger to be able to put everything i had on it. I have some stuff that i have been keeping on my many computers since Kazaa's time. Now i don't use it anymore but i like to keep stuff i got through it. Also, having tones of retail CD's\Album from many Back\Death\Trash Etc... Metal bands on my comp is cool. 700MB per CD ... that loads you a Hard drive quite a bit fast. Same for DVDs. I almost never watch DVDs on my TV. I prefer to watch them on my LCD Screen

Nice Review been look @ the seagate, going to pick one up this WE to replace my Maxtor160 so the info was nice.
sswilson I'm the same NOTHING gets left on my hdd, the draw back is hundreds of DVD's and CD's. Of course I can never find the right one. :(

Im running a Harmon Kardon DAL150 for my Quality music.

Nice sound quality, although I have to run Media Player 9 (I think version 7 and 8 are also supported).

I bought the DAL150 from ebay for like 20 bucks shipped, NIB.

The Driver has a couple bugs but they are minor enough that I keep using this and enjoying the added quality :)
