Im looking for an extreamly cheap large hard drive. Im looking at 160gb's. 7200RPM and hopefully 8mb cache. These are what iv found so far;
Western Digital 160GB ATA100 7200rpm 2mb - OEM
Maxtor Diamondmax Plus 9 160Gb 7200rpm 8mb Cache ATA133 Hard Drive - OEM
Its like £2 difference between a 2mb cache and 8mb cache. Thing is iv never had any hard drive fail on me (My 2 hdd's that fucked up was my fault really) so i know nothing about different brands and everyone has had there own experience with different brands. Thing is money is the most important thing here. Mainly becuase i know everyone is going to say a different brand is there favourite and its each to his own experience really. Basically what hdd to you reccemend that is CHEAP, 7200rpm, 8mb cache and 160gb +, i mean if you know a 250Gb thats £20 more thats great.
Thanks for teh helpage, also what do you think about the two drives iv mentioned?
