I almost agree, but for the same price (including shippnig), you get a 250GB version with 16MB cache:

Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 (Perpendicular Recording) ST3250620AS 250GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM $79.99 + free shipping!

cgrado: last time I checked, $100 is not under $90

Well, the 250GB has free shipping, which places it at the best bang/buck position (79.99 / 250 = 32c/GB). The 320GB is 33c/GB, if you include shipping.

They're all good.. just pick a 16MB Cache version. You'll notice the difference.

Now, that 400GB version might be worth the extra expense.

actually one from fry's is best, 400gb, and it says free shipping, but it comes out tomorrow, so may not get one, depending on how many people preorder it.

BUt it says Perpendicular Recording, but the is the 7200.10 series, not .9 series. So not to sure.

I'd contact Frys. The information is conflicting.
  • Barracuda 7200.9 Series
  • Perpendicular Recording
The Perpendicular Recording only exists as Barracuda 7200.10 series and NOT 7200.9 series (which are older models.) Still a good drive, but NOT perpendicular recording. Or the series is listed incorrect.
