    yeah, I don't like it either. I for one never check the thread, but their rules are rules... Oh well. Still sucks it was a refurb. I would have bought a bunch of them for a raid 5 storage box.

    im glad this has its own thread. its worthy enough I say. good find. Im really thinking about this one

    by the way - referb hard drives go through alot more tests then normal hard drives after then have been referbished just to make sure they wont die. Honestly, i trust them way more then a normal retail hard drive. This is just me though. and they are cheaper!

    I got two for $104.98 with shipping!
    My first woot as well, and I couldn't pass up .5TB for $100...2mb cache isn't great, but I need space more than performance, and as a poor graduate student, this fits the bill.

    Woot!

    Ditto on first and 2nd sentence.

    How much of a performance gain is there really from 2mb cache to 8mb cache? I never really saw it... can someone explain where you would see the difference... like loading a game or something?

    I thought the gains were to be had primarily in games. Not in the initial loading, but intermittent texture loading and things like that.

    I need mine just for mass storage, so sustained read/write is more important than large data caching.
