I know WD just came out with their new single platter 320gb drives. I have 5 750gb seagate 7200.10's in my media server, havent had any issues as of yet.

Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 ST3500320AS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM latest and greatest by seagate.

BuddyRo, mind if I ask why it has to be 16mb, instead of the newer 32mb caches?

I think he meant at least 16mb cache. But yeah with $120 he can get a 500gb 32mb cache drive.
