the drama continues!

The only WD that beats the hitachi in my book is the brand new Velociraptor (when it comes to watt/noise/performance), and that one is a little too pricey for me, I figure I could get a better drive in a year or so from the money I'm saving on buying the cheap hitachi drive now.

neat review
