WD 500gb with 16mb buffer 5.1k
with 32mb buffer around 5.6k
and if u plan to own seagate make sure its 32 mb only.16mb one is not so good

well can't say.there's nothing new with the hdds except seagate's upcoming drives with little revision.expect a minute drop when these are available.

i recently bought WD 500gb with 16mb buffer

i use it for Direct From Disk sampling in kontakt 3 which requires best performance.and it just runs great on this new hdd. + i think they are more reliable than any other brand :)

Prashant, it's a WD HDD I was talking about.

I was also using a 250GB Hitachi Desktar, it was a slight low on vista experience rating. (5.1 I guess).
