Seagate Barracuda XT spins at 7200RPM and sports 64MB of cache as well as the SATA 6Gb/s interface - though transfers peak at 149MB/s.
Tons of Space.
Seagate DiscWizard software simplifies accessing the full capacity.
Very good 162 MB/s read bandwidth with ATTO Benchmark.

The price can buy you more storage space if you get lower capacity drives instead.
DiscWizard software slightly clunky.
