Hi, I'm in the market for a faster Hard Drive for my laptop since I've recognized that it is by far the biggest bottleneck on my system, and I thought this would be a great place to ask for some advice. I have a few conditions though: -It must be reliable. I really can't state that enough. I realize that all mechanical drives are destined to fail, and that by sheer bad luck you can end up with a dud even from a good manufacturer, but it would be nice to minimize those occurrences (by my bitter tone, yes, I've had a lot of hard drives fail on me the last few years...this stock drive I have now is the first decent one I've had in awhile). -It must be fast, noticeably faster than what I have now. I'm looking into 7200 RPM drives, but I've read somewhere (can't recall where) that the WD Scorpio drives are noticeably speedy even at 5400 RPMs. -I don't want a SSD. I have my reasons for it, I just don't think now is the best time for me to get one. -Size is not important to me. I do not need 1 TB of storage. As long as it has at least 160 GBs, that's enough for me. With that in mind, I've been looking into the WD Scorpio Black 7200 RPM, 160 GB drive. Anyone have any experiences with that line of drives? Anyone have any recommendations otherwise? I'm not going to touch Seagate or Fuji drives at all though. Thanks in advance, I appreciate the time and help.
