    Ok, so if I were to choose from a 320GB F4 and a 500GB F3, which one should I go for? F3, probably? Since the price is identical.

    Yes F3. Platter size will be larger.

    But single platter 667GB F4 would be nice

    Re: Samsung F4 first review!

    I've seen a few reports of F3s dying around now - whether it's a bad batch or purely because they were popular a few months back, I've no idea, but looking down the hard drive section of another forum a week or 2 back, there were plenty of reports of failures.
