can't beat a 5 year warranty!!!


as soon as all my Wd 8mb buffer special edition drives die. I will replace them with Seagates most likely. all though that 10k rpm hardrive sure is nice. I just checked newegg seagate does make a 10k drive but its only the 36gb

Hopefully the quality of Seagates drives won't slip to maxtor's quality.

Just because newegg only has the 36gb drive, doesn't mean seagate only makes one 10,000 rpm drive. 36, 146 and 300gb to name a few. the 300gb drive is very pricey at about $700 . mmk



my only point was that is the first 10k harddrive I(myself) have seen

I love my Seagate 7200.9 160gig SATA2.

It absolutely smokes. I can't imagine how fast things like the 15k RPM barracudas are.

One of these days I might pick up a 15k RPM drive like a small 36gig or whatever the smallest Barracuda is.

I see potential anti-trust/unfair practices problems with this. Who will be left but 2 major producers?

Hitachi (formerly IBM's hd division) is still around.

... also Fujitsu, Samsung, and Toshiba.



Having replaced thousands of Seagates and Maxtors, I'll stick with my trusted Western Digital drives.
