    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.

    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.

    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 :eek:

    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.
