    Go for the WD 640. It's a great drive, very quite. I like it allot.
    It should be very reliable as it only uses 2 320GB platters.
    Wear as the spinpoint use 3 250GB platters. More platters
    Means more chance of somthing going wrong.

    Thanks RPALOALTO,

    Took the plunge and went with the WD6400AAKS:
    Chief Value had them for $ 93.08 ea. including tax & shipping after $4 coupon
