Since the F3's are so cheap, they're DEFINITELY worth it for a RAID0 on an OS drive though. They're not THAT far behind the WD Black drives, but they're nearly half the price .

And the Seagate Momentus is still a joke. Sure, it has onboard SSD, but you STILL have the platter drive. The faster platter drives (WD Black and Samsung F3) will still be the faster drive over that Seagate. Seagate has YET to make a drive recently that's worth any money. Nothing since the 7200.10's.
I agree if your just going for storage, the f3 has respectable download speed. If you are using for your OS go with the black! Check out the read write speeds in my OP.

Well, Newegg had the F3 for $54.99, which was why I was gonna grab 2 of them. Guess they decided to change the price within the past hour to $64.99

On the other hand, the WD Black is $79.99 after coupon, so if the consensus is that the WD by itself is better than the F3 by itself, guess I will just get one at this time and grab another one down the road.
