Who would want a WD when you can get the seagate ST7200.11, very high sustain transfer rate, much faster than the WD

I thought the same :iagree:

WD GP is not for performance enthusiasts (like myself) and the Seagate 1 TB will be my next HDD buy if WD didn’t make perfomance 1TB like Seagate
Till then , my WD 500GB SE16 will serve me well :slight_smile:

People building a HTPC who want a quiet drive that won’t cook their eggs in the morning. To them the additional performance isn’t needed. I would think the WD spinning at 5400 RPM and operating at a significantly lower temperature would be more reliable for data storage as well.
