    Which HDD for my Shuttle?

    Ok I'm set on buying a Shuttle today I want an IDE HDD to go in it that is at least £120Gb. It will be used for the occasional LANParty but mainly as a download box, divx player.

    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Got a 120GB Seagate Barracuda - 7200rpm/8MB cache, almost silent...
    All effort is useless

    I thought the Samsung drives were supposed to be very quiet too... But it probably doesn't really matter that much. I have the SP0411N, it's only 40GB but ATA133 and 7200RPM and it's very quiet and very fast.

    Are you gonna whack a decent graphics card in it? If so, why not get the SN45G for £109 + VAT?

    Yeah I'm putting a GF4 Ti4400 in it. Tbh honest the main reason I want this version is because I prefer the bare alu design of the SN41G2

    I see. Well if you like the G2 design better, then go for it. Personally I prefer the G design, but it's gonna be your shuttle, so don't listen to me!

    I was talking about personal preference as to what something looks like. If you like it, then get it, it doesn't matter what others think of it. You're gonna be the one who has to look at it!

    On the other hand, when it comes down to things like HDD's (what this thread is actually about) then it's good to take on board people's advise and come up with your own conclusion.

    The only thing that puts me off Samsung drives is bad experiences with previous Samsung products....

    Just ordered me an SN45G today, my first foray into SFF

    Like you I'm also about to pick up a new drive and wasn't sure whether to go for the Diamondmax Plus 9 or go a little extra for the Samsung. The limited reviews I've read suggested the 8MB cache samsung drives are some of the fastest on the market (only bettered by the 'deathstar') and are pretty reliable to boot.
