    I’ve always liked Western Digital hard-drives, Chris, but for the past 18 months, I’ve found that the failure rate has sky-rocketed. My clients work in high-end CAD, digital video, & multimedia, so I not only demand a high MTBF (mean time between failures), but also high reliability. With a terabyte of data, the last thing you want is to come in one morning to find things going “clack, clack, clack” in your computer!

    I’ve thus switched over to Seagate &, in fact, just today ordered one of their ST310005N1A1AS-RK 1 TB SATA/300 drives with 32 MB buffer & 7200 rpm that I found on Bensbargains.net . Frys.com has them at $235.00 plus $6.00 shipping. This will help immensely on two video projects that we just were awarded.

    Keep up the good work!

    Aloha!

    Sorry I was wrong. It is a four platter drive whose claim to fame seems to be lower power consumption acheived by varying the speed between 5400 and 7200 rpm when approriate.
