I enjoyed the song they had advertising for it.

Just for the record, and this isn't a waste of money: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136011 I can guarantee that the Seagate will be faster overall in the benchtests than the western digital Raptor X.

I totally agree with general. I've got my older PC as a TV capture machine... All of the programs i've captured this weekend were about 97GIG. (All highest quality of course.) but i'm running out of room on in my storage of 750GIG... I only have about 130GIG left.

So a drive like that would be nice to have. (2 seconds slower the the raptor) and 10times the size!!!! Sign me up for a pair of those!!!
