I want to correct something

WD 750GB is not the fastest 7200RPM. Hitachi 1TB is the fastest 7200RPM hard drive, so WD 750GB would be the second fastest.........

But Hitachi 1TB cost twice as much as WD 750GB, and it just slightly faster, you will barely see any difference in terms of performance. So, WD 750GB is a better value for price.............

Currently there is no review for Seagate 1TB and for the new Barracuda 7200.11 hard drives. And as far as I know they are not out yet.........

But the WD 750GB is already out, and you can get it from newegg

they will be out soon(my dad works for seagate)
western digital has always been the slightly lower quality brand
i would wait for the 7200.11 but thats just me it could be worth waiting for
