Or run RAID5!

Or just run multiple Drives with different folders, files, etc. and back them up over networks or tapes.

Yes, plus the increase cache. Also the 7200.11 series is much quieter and there are no resistors/chips on the bottom PCB of the HDD. (Good for stacking them close together).

this one is a better value IMO
Seagate Barracuda (ST31000340AS) 7200.11
http://canadacomputers.com/index.php...cid=HD.443.877

or Seagate Barracuda (ST3750330AS) 7200.11
http://canadacomputers.com/index.php...cid=HD.443.877

they worked out to have a better $$-GB ratio then the 500gb's I was looking at myself so I got the ST31000340AS because it had the better ratio (about 5.4gb/$1)

RAID 10 requires 4 HDDs. RAID 5 is still better than a single HDD, in terms of write speed.

Seriously, i dont think i could ever use of 1tb for at least some years down the line. .11 HDs are faster but i question their reliability from my OP, but for only 10 dollars more, i might just say why not.

Chozart swears by the WD 640GB, and he knows his stuff. He says that the platters on that one make up for the 32MB Cache.

I am personally running 3 7200.11's (see sig) with no problem. They're quiet, and Seagate has a great reputation, overall. I used to think WD was the best until I started doing a little more homework on Seagate. I love them and I plan on keeping them for quite some time. I've been running them about 24/7 for about 2 weeks now without a hitch. Time will tell.
