    Sure am :)

    Both models are 7200RPM, with 2MB cache, and have a single 20GB platter. Can't get more apples to apples than that :)

    At least TAFE's supplier has been returning the IBM drives without a grumble... that's the main thing, and we're even starting to get 120GXP drives in return for the defective 60GXP ones :)
    What came first - Insanity or Society?

    we aren't anti-WD at all.. it's just that this is a thread about IBM HDDs... not WD HDDs... :)

    In case you don't get the hint...avoid IBM like the plague!!!!

    Never seen or had a WD go bad. Had to RMA a few Maxtors, but with their no-BS process, I'll stick with them as well.
