Default Ordered new HDD for Vista: WD Caviar SE16 750GB

Hi,

I have a Seagate 320GB in my system now, but I use it for dual booting XP/Vista, so I was in need for a new HDD just for my Vista, the other reason was storage shortage due the amount of games, patches, updates placed on my pc.

So I ordered this one:

http://www.wdc.com/en/products/Products.asp?DriveID=311

So I hope to read some interesting notes from the guys/girls, I know it's too late to change my opinion, but I always love to read some remarks, feedback according this product...

thx

I bought a 500GB 16MB cache WD for my HTPC and I'm impressed. It's much quieter than my desktop's Seagate 7200.10s.

I think my next HDD purchase will be SSD though.

How many trucks does it take to move that 750?

Great choice. I just replaced a Raptor with the 750 SE16. AWESOME!

Quiet, fast, quiet, fast and fast.

The Raptor will be sold or relegated to a USB enclosure.

Yes, it is heavy.

I've got the 500GB version and it gets 5.8 on the WEI. I'd expect yours to get the 5.9 being a newer model.

Nice little box, but what about the heat?

Windows Home Server, Enermax 550, AMD 4200+ dual core, 4 gig ram, plus other odd's and ends. I need to replace that PSU with something smaller as it's way over kill for this. But everything but the HD's and SATA II card was stuff I just had on hand.

That's the temp on the front LCD display. It run's 24/7 with out any problems. That box and WHS can backup/storage and stream Video/Audio through my network/wireless hub to anywhere in the house with np, but that's another project LOL. It will hold something like 570+ DVD's (if I did that math right), so much music it's hard to put a number on it. After formatting drives it's has around 2.75 TB's available

I will get around to cleaning it up a bit when time permits.

I really wanted to go with this
http://smartbuildingnet.com/webstore...spx?itemid=112.

But the price of parts was just getting way out of hand for this project so I went cheap LOL.
