.............and btw, I checked out that Newegg page you posted. There's not one drive there that beats the drive I'm buying in price!!!
You do realize mine is a 1.5TB and not a 1TB HD? 64mb cache?? Western Digital?? Which one of those drives had better or same stats at better price????
Couldn't even get that right.
You do realize that you are being an obnoxious spoiled brat. What's the matter daddy didn't tell you what you wanted to hear. That ""deal" you are so proud of finding may not be all it's cracked up to be so you didn't get a nice pat on the head?
If you can't or don't feel you should have to, for what ever reason, do your own (very basic) research then then pay attention to what you're told. For what these drives are designed for there is squat real world difference between 32 and 64 MB cache. Why would you take a chance with an Ebay ripoff for something like a HDD?
The $70 Caviar Green's at Newegg had a TON of DOA's if you read the feedback and are obviously the much slower 5400rpm speed. I use an SSD for my C drive which runs my OS and a few other programs, this drive is just a slave along with the other drives. High definition movies and tv eat up a lot of space. Just filled up my 1TB a few weeks ago.
Just wanna get what I paid for....a drive that spins at 7200rpm among other things. I saw the Caviar Green and began to doubt. Hoped someone here had actual experience with a Caviar Green drive that DOES spin at that speed and could tell me for sure.
We told you that the "Green drives" were variable speed. What don"t you understand about the word variable?? They spin at from 5400-7200 RPM according to what the onbd controller has been programed to give you under specific conditions. We did not address reliability as we were not asked that question. No one can give a valid answer to that question unless they have had one up and running for a couple of years. They haven't been on the market that long. You did not tell us what you wanted that drive for so we gave you the benefit of the doubt and made sure to advise you of that drives limitations.
Did you do "ANY" research before this post? Did you try to find any reliable 3rd party reviews? You would be an idiot to take etailer reviews at face value for something as important as your HDD's.
