I'd say the 146Gb one. You'll get a faster access time and I seriouly doubt you'll need 400Gb!! unless your a programmer or something.

What exactly do you want all the space for, it might be useful to find out.

i havnt tryed, but i bet u could fill 400gb's. i bet some anime freaks have over 400gb's of eps.

the 10,000 rpm drive would probably be faster. and you wouldnt need to worry about 1 drive f'in up your raid array, and loosing all 400gb's of data.
