I don't have a 500GB. My 4 year old 80GB Hitachi was faster than my new 750GB 7200.11 HDD. Hopefully that isn't the case when I get my firmware update......if Seagate will allow me access to it. :snob:

Right now the fastest drive for the money is probably the new 320gb WD, since its a single platter.
Nothing to see here.
