SAMSUNG HD103UI 1TB 5400 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM / $119.99 + Free Ship

Grabbed this from over at slickdeals again. i know the RPM is slow. But the cache is nice. if anything, good price and great storage.


Good luck with it.

Nice price. I think I would just spend the extra $15 and get the 7200 sammy though.

Nice find donkeyz

The 5400 RPM would maybe be ok for an external back up drive but IMO it
is just too slow for any thing else.

It would be fine just for storage, internal or external. I prefer 5400 drives for storage (music, movies, pics, etc.) because lower spindle speed = less heat = less chance for failure. I’ve never had a 5400 rpm 3.5 inch drive fail.
