is/was this a laptop disk? otherwise 5400RPM is painfully slow.

Deal is gone but it's a great deal for mass storage.

1) no need for the fastest drives for 'most' storage
2) excellent choice for a USB enclosure

it was a full 3.5 drive...this won't be my system drive so I'm all over it...5400 RPM isn't bad for mass storage.

Hopefully my order will get shipped.

5400rpm will substantially increase the time it takes to move large amounts of data around. You don't save much over the normal 7200rpm either. Not worth it imo.

I agree Lord, but I think this drive is literally going to be incremental back for me. I have about 1.8 TB now but I don't use all of it...redundancy redundancy redundancy!!!

order was just cancelled! pricing mistake on the part of mwave. i did receive a pretty good coupon for the trouble though.

Most etailers would just cancel and let it be. Lots of respect for mwave.

well they came through with the coupon so I'm sort of happy. Finding something to use that coupon on with was next to impossible. I've never seen more products "out of stock" at any retailer in my life.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
