  1. FYI...

    It's the "7200.12" line.

    Greater areal density should make it faster...

    Newegg has it for $65, shipped. No reviews yet...

    This is insane... not too long ago, it would require a cabinet to house 1TB of storage disks.
  4. Does that thing come turbo charged?
  5. Was it a standardized "type" with MFM connectors or did you manually have to enter the number of cylinders and heads?
  6. I don't know... it was a long time ago, and I was even less computer savvy then.... I sort of remember the term "MFM", and never did manually enter cylinder/head info.
  7. Seagate is claiming "up to 160MB/s, sustained" data transfer rate. Wouldn't THAT be nice if accurate?
  8. i always wait till the last second to buy a drive, every week they are cheaper
