Any one order this hd yet?
32MB Cache and 105-MB/s sustained data rate!
It STARTS at 500GB
A 500Gb would make a nice replacement to my .....euuggh..Maxtor....
Ooo, I was thinking of getting a couple of 320GB .10s, I may just wait a little and get a couple of these instead... >drool<
That could give a raptor a run for it's money in real world tests me thinks?
It'll be faster than a Raptor, and likely quieter too.
I'll ask if someone has a contact at Seagate.
hmmmm quieter eh, interesting!
Yes, I do
God damnit, just when I vowed never to buy another seagate drive
I might give it a go, seeing as I've just started a new job, but if it fails like the last three did, I'm chucking it up the wall.
I don't know why people say bad things about Maxtor and Seagate... I'm running both with no problems. Honestly, the only brand that has made my life a living heck were the harddrives I started out with. A pair of 13GB IBM Deskstars. But that was ages ago, and the data is long gone...
yah, i don't get the seagate hate either. i'm running 3 seagates and a maxtor right now, and none have ever given me troubles. and i really abuse the maxtor, it sits in a crappy external usb case on the carpet or wherever it gets thrown.
i hope these .11s come to canada soon, i'm in the market for a new 500gb drive.
what are the major differences between these .11s and the .10s?
i have one its very nice
platter density - 250GB vs 188GB iirc
Samsungs new drives should be out reasonably soon though, with 333GB per platter /drool
Look nice, but around £100 a pop at the mo
Rather get a couple of 500gb 7200.10 for an extra £30
I wonder if the .11 will be as hot as the .10
When I had a .10 in the rig, it warmed the Samsung HDD under it by a good 10C
I have also been using Maxtors for years and had no problems at all.
Whenever I mention I use maxtor drives I get the groans of hate about them, maybe I'm just lucky or maybe it's just all hype.
After saying that, I recently bought a Seagate 500gb sata2 16mb cache hdd, mostly coz I got it cheap.
It was that or a western digital at the same price.
supposedly some of the 250Gbs are already using the new platter though.
how much does density affect speeds? i never really paid attention to hard drives...
