I sent a request for the firmware for both of my drives. I wish you could just download the firmware though without the need for email reply.

damn that´s not good for seagate taht has been a reliable drive maker for ages it feels.

so if i´m gonna go between SAMsungs F1 750 or WD Black 640/GP 640 wich of the WD is better for raid GP/BLACK?

too bad for seagate and customers

don't get GP if you want performance, get either the Blue series or Black. Black is better but difference between Blue and Back (for the 640gb) drive is very small.

So if back cost a lot more go for blue.

GreenPower are excellent if silence and low power are most important features of a drive.
Perfect place for GP is HTPC or external enclosure
