    I am looking for something with a Balance of Speed and Performance and it has to be 500GB or more.

    I was thinking of the Momentus Hybrid, but what are your suggestions.

    I use my Mini to hold my Music, Video and Media library as well as Bills and some games.

    When I see Video I cringe because it chews up so much space. Music can too if you have like me 115GB and more ripping to come.

    The XT probably work. I own 2 of them, but have now decided to use both as 2nd drives in a dual drive setup with SSD's in main drive bays.

    I do not think a 1TB is available in 2.5" with good platter speeds like 7200, so until that becomes available guess the XT is pretty good unless a big SSD could be in the cards. :cool:
