That sounds promising.emotion said:A guy I work with bought one for his macbook, worked fine until the logic board on the machine gave out (unrelated prob, it was suffering from the sudden shutdown syndrome). I'll see if he's got the machine back and the 160GB drive is in it again.
Pretty sure the drive was bought in the UK.
Not only is the 5400.3 (2.5", 8MB cache, SATA-150) worth looking at but there is now a 7200.2 (2.5" 16MB, SATA) also due to come out.
Thank you. But are Hitachi drives as good as Seagate's?emotion said:The Hitachi equivalent (Travelstar 5K160) is also due in a fortnight.
Well I have a 5k80 in my powerbook 12" and it's fast enough, though the cache is smaller than the failed Toshiba drive that Apple took out.Balli said:Thank you. But are Hitachi drives as good as Seagate's?
