Thats the one I have. The most noticeable difference (mainly from 8MB cache) is boot time. I had an old WD 20gig 5400rpm and it took around 40 seconds to get through the boot screen. the drive you're asking about made the boot screen loading process go by in 11 seconds. All I did was ghost old drive to new, so speed increase was from new drive only. My advice is to go with only WD or Maxtor. Also that is a great deal for that drive from the site your lookin' at.
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
