    For ten dollars more you could get Seagate 1TB drives when they are on sale which seems to happen more and more. I just picked up 8 of them and they are wicked. I already had 5 for my personel NAS and have been impressed.

    Start here:

    Seagate Computers - Barracuda 7200.11 ST31000340AS 1TB Hard Drive - ST31000340AS

    Then look for coupon codes and you will be able to get a 1TB drive for 100 Dollars or less.

    Just for you:)

    I found you a 1TB drive for 99. This is a Hitachi drive, I also have one of these and it is a good drive.

    Newegg.com - HITACHI Deskstar 7K1000 HDS721010KLA330 (0A35155) 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives

    I am working on cataloging the performance of all of these drives in my collection. As you might be able to tell there are quite a few. I believe all of the benchmarks all finished, they just need put into charts and a way to show the data produced.

    If I made charts like the ones I use in the reviews we would have to scoll for every to get to the next page button.

    Hello

    I'd love to order of NewEGG and all those other american sites...

    The problem is, I'm in australia... and what with the economy the way it is... and shipping/tax and all that stuff... it'd be easier and probably better to just do local or semi-local (same country... easier if needing to collect on warranty).

    While I've got nothing against hitachi or Seagate. I'm a big fan of the Samsung Spinpoint F1 series. The drives are fast, quiet and thus far reliable for me.

    Thanks...

    Ah I've got another question, what exactly will RAID 0 do for me?

    Because I have found that the cheap 500GB are 16MB Cache, yet the cheap 1TB are 32MB Cache.

    And if all RAID 0 does is double the cache... well you understand what I am asking.

    Is that what RAID 0 does? To make it (almost) double the speed?

    Panarchy

    PS: The 1TB are a little cheaper than 2 500GB. About $11 difference in price...
