    Hard to turn down when they are so cheap right now.

    I'd have purchased two of these drives a month ago if I could find them for sale anywhere. These drives are currently unobtainable. None on Newegg, Tigerdirect, OWC/Macsales, Ebay.. you name it. I wish someone could shed some light as to what the issue is, these drives seem to be pretty solid, not to mention very quick.

    I upgraded to a Momentus 320GB 5400 because it was seriously cheap in Singapore. It's a great drive and is much faster than the old 160GB 5400 because of the higher density.

    Seagate is one of the best brands. I try and go for their drives wherever possible.

    the issue is seagate is out of stock. demand was higher than expected. they should be getting more early april. i know this because i've had a warranty replacement on order for 3 weeks now, and they periodically call me to update the status. as soon as they tell me mine is shipping, i'll update the forum.

    I have the 500gb 7200. Love it... Some people have complained about noise / vibrations, but mine is just as quiet as the old one I had and has no vibration issues at all. Worthwhile upgrade if you can find one... Heard Dell was selling rebranded ones via their website...

    I purchased the 320gb 7200 from bestbuy. I returned the 500gb because it was making noises. Not the head lock noise everyone talks about. This one has the same issue. Its def. louder than the stock drive. Honestly, i dont see the difference in speed. I think A real upgrade would be to SSD. however, not until the prices go down. I will take back this drive tomorow to bestbuy.
