    I won't win. But my 10,000 RPM 74GB Raptor is ageing a little.

    Re: Win a Toshiba SSD bundle

    None of the answers are correct, there are 1,000,000 megabytes in a terabyte because mega- and tera- are SI prefixes. Did you mean mebibyte and tebibyte in the question? You may say that this is pedantic but SSDs are storage and the storage industry uses 1GB = 1,000,000 bytes - look at Toshiba's product briefs "Toshiba defines a megabyte (MB) as 1,000,000 bytes, a gigabyte (GB) as 1,000,000,000 bytes..."

    For their time, they were great drives (although a touch noisy when chuntering away in Raid 0 )

    For once, not entered and good luck to all those who do enter. I'm fine with what I have.

    Welcome to Hexus, and don't worry we like pedants here, though someone will no doubt be along to argue just because they like arguing

    Speak for yourself. I personally shot the last person I met who said 'tebibyte'. Never could stand the Tebitubbies.

    Great competition as always, Hexus. SSDs are always welcome.
