hard disk

im currently building my new computer, and was wondering about hdd.

is Hitachi a good make?
is the cache size important? ive came acrss 2mb and 8mb - im guessing 8 is better.


hardware monkey
hitachi and ibm merged a year or so ago. good company with fast drives. but everyone has their picks and pans so just trust that any harddrive you buy has a chance of crashing. for benchmarks and comparisons, go to www.storagereview.com and look at their 'performance database'.

and 8mb is marginally better. :)


Have just bought the Hitachi Deskstar 120 Gb, having seen reviews of all current makes.
Has fastest read/write speeds .
Used with "Tweak XP " cache tweak settings ...reads at 90Mb per sec.,and that is only the 2 Mb cache model.
Old SATA Maxtor 120 Gb drive read @65 Mb per sec !

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
