Im thinking about getting this drive: Seagate Barracuda4 ST360021A (60G 7200rpm ATA100 2M with Hydrolic Baring ( Quite and Cool )). Ive heard good reviews. Any opinions from anyone who has it or has used it?

Thanks guys. AlecStaar.........i really dont need a 100GB drive.....(i already have a 34 gig). Its really not worth the extra $185 cdn
the seagate is $205cdn and the WD is $390 for something that I really dont need

I was going to buy 2 40gig versions of this drivefor RAID. In the end I went with the new Maxtor HDD's. Reason is that for RAID, latenc becomes more important and the Seagates have a high latency compared to other drives.

I don't remember where I heard it, but there was some major issue between the HighPoint HPT370 controller and some Seagate drives in RAID that resulted in slow-ass performance.
I thought I might mention that to ya, especially if you're using an Abit RAID board. ;)

similar set up...60gig Seagate Barracuda as my C: system drive and twin Maxtor 40gigs (7200rpm) on a Promise FastTrack RAID card...works great.....

ive actually decided on the 80GB seagate drive. Im gonna pick it up today.....i dont need the extra space but $70cdn exta for 20 more GB is too hard to pass up. Im tempted to get the WD1000BBSe....but i think im gonna pass( im too cheap). Thanks for your input guys
