    Does your motherboard support ATA133 (its a faster connection, ATA133 = 133Mb/s instead of ATA100 = 100Mb/s)
    That would be worth checking first, if you've got your motherboard manual.

    Seek time is also important.

    8ms compared to 8.9ms may not sound much, but it is actually a considerable improvement.

    60 GB for $90?Hell I got a Western Digital 80GB External for $99.

    ADs in the Sunday Paper show you can get 120 GB Western Digital internal for $80 now.....160GB for $99.

    Check your local Best Buy or Circuit City.....CompUSA if one is around you.

    Well... I have just one question. Is the Western digital 8MB or 2MB buffer? In your post it shows 8 and 2.

    At this point in time I wouldn't consider anything smaller than 80 GB. (Price/value ratio)

    they're two different ones, i just forgot to put the spec for the first one.
    i already have one hdd 120 gb, but i need a smaller one to set up windows, and some other stuff. i think that i'm going to buy maxtor 60 gb ata 133.

    Listen to FC.

    Wait a bit and scan the paper for sales.

    I just got two WD ATA133 7200rpm 8MB cache 160 GB HDs for $99 each.

    Of course I'll probably retire before the rebate checks arrive...
