So before 2 days my hard drive is rotten, which was generally relatively new to 3 years. Good thing it's my little 20GB Seagate, which is quite old non-smoking 5 years, and he hasn't even raised it at all “sonority” si 🙂 . While since the new Maxtor it was much noisier and with higher heat performance, however, it is slim 😉 . Anyway, now I'm thinking of wintering Hitachi 320GB SATA2 16MB cache 😉 😛 sounds good and will make the system quite cluttered. I've been hearing a lot of good things about Hitachi lately, they cheered me on for Western Digital, but at work 2 they've been rotting for half a year, so I don't think I'm going to spend the winter like that. Anyway, the decision has been made, all I have to do is buy it and do the tests to see how it will perform..
