Good review, will help give some perspective with regards to the actual performance of these drives... For the price this 7200.9 series drive is A-OK and two in raid 0 would obliterate any performance advantage a single 7200.10 or 7200.11 HD would have, while remaining a cheaper solution... Only one problem with raid 0 and thats a doubled chance of data loss. Decisions decisions .

No not really... I have only had one HD fail on me, and it was 3 yrs old. I dunno maybe I haven't owned enough HDs(12) throughout my lifetime, but so far I have had little to complain about. I still have 2 80gb HDs going strong in my old rig and they're pushing 5yrs now.

Don't be surprised if you do get a 7200.10. I've ordered from Frys before, and have gotten a newer drive than expected.

I picked up a Maxtor 500GB for $99 about 2 months ago, and it was labelled as 7200.10 on the drive (Seagate owns Maxtor).

i had my eye on hdd's for a long time, its not that im in need of it. i just want a bigger hdd, doesn't matter to much if its not perpinduclar recording, im not trying to like benchmark hdds. but for that price, its almost impossible to beat.

good deal indeed.

these just arrived at my door today, and GREAT NEWS

BOTH of the hard drives i ordered are 7200.10s!!! I would take a picture but my cam is dead atm.

Correct me if i'm wrong, but the 7200.10 means that it has perpendicular recording technology?

FAST shipping and GREAT deal!
