    Maxtor 160GB 5400RPM ATA-133 drives are now $599 at CWS. That's under $3.75 per gigabyte!

    Thats why he said STORAGE.... your mp3's and vcd's don't need 2K rpm, much less 5.4K rpm.........

    Well from Maxtor's site it looks as if this drive has 40GB/platter capacity, at 5400RPM this would stomp all over 7200RPM Drives with a 20GB/platter capacity :)

    They haven't gone to 40GB/platter in 7200RPM yet because of the very fine engineering needed to make the drives - it is possible but who wants to buy a A$2,000 Hard Drive? :confused:
