I've got a 7200.11 drive as well. Top notch performance. 32mb offers very little real-world performance gain, only theoretical.

A lot of Seagate fanboys here

Try to check for reviews for WD 640GB

Even though WD 640GB has 16MB it outperforms Seagate 7200.11

Personally, I would buy WD 640GB because it is faster and has 140GB extra storage

Agreed.

Samsung F1 > WD 640gb > 7200.11

i've seen more failed wd hard disks than any other brand. i've had several seagates and never had any problems. in fact, i have a 6 gig seagate that still works perfectly to this day.
