Here's my results after a clean install of Win7 x64 Ultimate







Up to you. You have a SSD already, so what's your point?
For fast storage? Or is the F3 still better overall?

For fast storage I would wait for 2TB and 3TB versions unless 1TB is good enough for your needs.

At this point the 7k1000.d is faster than the F3 for sequential transfers.

The results I see other users posted are the results of a empty drive. The results I got was with the OS and Office installed.
 
Just another BF3

Maybe you should hit the books, friend. The problem with the internet and forums is that everyone is an expert these days

Start here:
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...-hdd,3005.html
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disk_dr...haracteristics
(search for seek time)

We can wait for reviews by trusted sites. I could be wrong, right?
The only reason I replied is because you are recommending this drive for a boot drive.

Don't do that, it's not funny!
My take: If all you're using it for is to store large files, photos, videos, etc... then it's great, but I'd wait for a larger variant. But I wouldn't recommend using it as a boot drive.

I'm due for a reformat, worth swapping out my old western digital caviar black?

I could very easily put that drive in my drobo.

Well, 1TB storage is more than enough for me since I have an extra 1TB on my external hard drive anyway. Sequential speeds are what we are after in Storage drives, right?

That's funny, you don't even own the drive. You're right, you think you're an expert because you pulled some reviews made by another site instead of drawing your own conclusions through your own testing. Come back when you own the drive and do some real world testing yourself.

I use it as a boot drive and in another build RAID0 boot drive. You have no clue what you're talking about.
