I'm having much troubles. For X-mas, I got a bunch of money towards Best Buy. I want to purchase this.
Western Digital - Caviar Black 1TB Internal Serial ATA Hard Drive for Desktops - WD10000LSRTL
If I go to new egg, as well as the Western Digital website, I see this as the only 1 TB Caviar Black
WD Caviar Black 1 TB SATA Hard Drives ( WD1001FALS )
Best Buy Model: WD10000LSRTL
New Egg Model/WD Model: WD1001FALS
I cannot find ANY difference towards either of them! They look identical, but I really could see Best Buy screwing me. So I wanted to see if anyone could find the difference between the two. Thanks
EDIT: It's a 5 year warranty on both, so don't use that as a reason.
Neither of these drives are built for Raid 0, (let alone I have no idea what it really is) but I want to attempt it. I have heard it speeds up both drives, but there's no protection towards crashes, which is why I have a 640 Gb to back up my system files. Do I have this correct? Is it easy to raid (Intel x58 SLI LE mobo)?
