    dont think so.

    I've seen 1TB's at 7200 rpm for like 80
    maybe im missing something

      So a 1.5TB for only 25% more is bad, how?

        RPM

        this link should lead to a comparison

          I have been hearing bad things about Seagates drives at the 1.5 TB range. Some of the reviews I saw were pretty abysmal....


          That is why I am asking. For a RAID 5 server (home) is this Samsung Drive a good deal?

          Is 7200 RPM really needed on this kind of perpendicular drive (very dense platter storage)?

            lol
            nothing about raid was mentioned in your original post. Thats a different story now

            but still...i think the price could be lower for a lower RPM regardless.

            And I'm talking about a cheaper price sans having to buy 2 to get the discount

              I was looking. the Seagate was the cheapest at $120 I think, and then this came along.

              I am dissapointed at the platter speed, but we are not talking load dimes. So long as it can stream....

              But 3G for $200?!?!?! Holy poo!!! Just a year ago that was 1G for the same!!!!

                As areal density increases, platter speed can decrease without hindering performance....at least I think.... that and the help of the 32meg cache for often used apps...
