    Whew!, 20% is nothing. Excellent. I'm glad I've waited.

    I'll wait several months after the first products will be introduced and only then get one. Until then I'm sticking to my raid cfg.

    I can't beleive alll of you guys are talking like serial ATA is something new that just popped up. It's been planned, talked about, and spec'ed for a couple of years now. Yeh, drives have now been demo'ed and mobo makers are showing boards with support for it. It won't be at Best Buy next week! If you need or want a new drive now, buy one now. By the time they accually arrive for sale, all of the questions will have been answered without us having to guess or speculate now.

    Fiber Optics have been around for 20 years now, but as I upgrade to a Fiber Network, I'll be pretty excited about it.
