What's the SE version have that a normal one doesn't? Also would you recommend getting a 5400rpm at 2mb cache since i'm only using it for data? I transfer files rarely. Thanks for the help.

The SE has an 8mb cache which does noticably improve preformance. If you don't mind the slow down in transfering files then sure go ahead with a 5400, it will be quiter and produce less heat as well as be cheaper. Then again you will notice the slowdown if you later use it as a primary HDD of some sort (or just one where you do transfer often) and might regret it. 5,400rpm 250Gb drive
