Default Re: And another WD Green.....

glad I opted not to get the green drive for my laptop tonight. I have a few passports and when my large one formed a connection issue in the usb port, I found out that WD went through way to much trouble to attach the usb host card to the drive in a permanent way. So I decided rather then another usb drive, I was finally going to upgrade my laptops drive, and I went with a nice 7200rpm seagate.

Oh btw... installing a HD in todays laptops is THE EASIEST THING EVER! Its like popping a cartridge into a SNES. If only desktops were that easy.

Some cases have sata/power ports on a chip that you slot the drive onto by sliding it into the rails, like a Mac Pro, but not many have this.

I thought Samsung stopped making HDD's? I love their drives, but aren't they outdated by now with them no longer updating the lineup?

Yeah Samsung stopped made HDDs, they lose money on it everytime due to fierced competition and sold HDD business to Seagate in April 2011.
