I could not find drives of that size with a 16MB cache.
The old HDD (the one that crashed) had only 60GB, so I will not need a drive much bigger than that. Maybe even this one's enough:
Databyte - WD 160GB 8MB 7200rpm PATA Caviar 3.5inch DT , WD1600JB
But then again, the bigger ones are not that much more money.
I was thinking of the WD 500GB drive, but I read a few negative reviews (also some good ones, btw) saying the drive is not very reliable ....
