Available also in a smaller 750GB version, both drives join the company’s “Scorpio Blue” line and offer 3Gbps SATA connectors, spin at up to 5,200rpm, have 8MB of cache and are based on 333GB-per-platter technology.

    Awesome! I have a WD 250 GB HD and that is great! 1 TB now could last you well forever with great prices... how can you go wrong?

    Agreed that really isn't bad and possibly a worthwhile upgrade if you only own a laptop as many do.

    Awesome!, got 350GB but now they had 1TB, hmm...i would love to have that!
    ...no worries on space storage, specially if using to work and school!
     
  7. It would be nice, if they could come up with a 7.200rpm 2.5 hard drive, at the storage level.
