I've got one...makes a very nice OS drive. I don't know how much 36 quid is, but I paid $12.50US (shipping was more than the drive :[ ) for a refurbished one off of eBay. I wouldn't pay more than $40US for a new one (I have 6 other Seagates of the same type I gave $47 a piece for with the 80-68 pin adapter included).

U2W is still plenty fast enough and the seek times definately make a difference.

I'm using a 10K Seagate as a boot drive, and I can tell you it is the fastest-booting drive I've owned. Of course, it was quite a bit more expensive when I bought it.
