    7200.10 Seagate drives ?

    Are these drives any good, I am looking at the 16meg 320gig one for my main windows and games drive.

    Found one at a good price (damaged box) for 55quid inc vat and delivery. which is not a problem with the 5 year warrenty.

    Should I go for it ? or can I get faster \ better for around the samr price.

    You won't get any high-capacity drive faster than the 7200.10s, by the looks of it. Very quick indeed.

    I've had a 400gb one that's failed recently (about 3 weeks old), and will get around to RMAing soon. Also got a 320gb one, and it's been fine so far, touch wood.

    From scan, so yeah you got a nice deal, and tbh I seagate for the win, when it comes to redundancy. I've had more WD drives fail on me than any other brand, but yet i keep go back lol.

    Raptors pwn, so perhaps getting 150gb version ? if your more worried about speed and resilience than your wallet.
