My brother needed a new drive...his current HDD was a 160GB laptop drive with only 10GB of free space left on his OS partition...how he still booted Windows I do not know.

It's worth noting that the 2TB F4 is a 3-platter drive, resulting in higher platter density, which improves read/write speeds. There are many factors besides RPM that impact hard drive performance, and the 2TB F4 actually outperforms many smaller 7200 RPM drives.

I was trying to point it out to someone who mentioned that the greens were also 5400rpm's... ty for info, but I already know.

But it's worth noting that this doesn't apply when barely any of the drive is in use.

For example, if a person only uses 40GB of space, the highest RPM will win. It's when between ~15-50% of a drive is in use that the difference in seek distance somewhat makes up for the RPM.

A 2TB 5400RPM drive seeking half-way into the platter may match a 1TB 7200RPM drive seeking to the end of the platter when it comes to seek times. Add in higher sequential speeds, and the slower drive will feel faster some of the time.

But if all your data is crammed into the first part of the drive, any drive at all will be able to jump tracks to the next file quite rapidly. In that case, the lower RPM just increases the time before the head is over the right part of the platter.


I usually suggest that people get drives far bigger than they need, to keep seek distance low and maintain high performance. If you use 300GB of space, you don't need a 500GB drive... you need a 1TB or 2TB drive.

Well, I just got my 2TB WD today, kind of wish I had waited, but it will do as a back up drive on my server.

So, does this drive have the bad access times like the WD greens?? I was going to get 2 of them, one for external drive, the other for video and audio storage. The only thing keeping me from getting them is the poor access times. I would prefer to stay with WD, as it is all I ever owned and have not had any crash so far.

But this is a good deal, and I need two. So it is a good dealx2=dam good deal. Plus I just got $20 gift card from the Egg because my monitor went on sale the day after I bought it.

I want to use this drive in a server (file backup and streaming as well as hosting my own websites).

Would you get 2 so I can put them in RAID 1 (mirrored to prevent data failure)? Or would you go about it some other way? I believe most servers have backup drives, etc.
