    750GB, unless this drive is 7200rpm (it doesn't actually mention it in the article but most likely 5400rpm).

    If it is a 7200rpm drive, I'm buying it ASAP! Lol. Probably will be 5400rpm like the rest. I think I found my new 1TB drive finally! Curious once the benchmark scores come out compared to the other two currently available for notebooks. Samsung is higher quality, so this should blow those out of the water.

    Other 1TB drives consist of three 333GB platters. This one is made of two 500GB platters. That means this Samsung is denser and higher density yields better performance, at least in theory.

    Nice, had a 1TB (11.5mm) Samsung drive in my MBP but the thing died after using it in a train because of the shocks(was always on a table lol). Built my old 320 GB in and this thing just doesn't want to die...
    Anything on shock protection for the drive?

    Wow with that size, I believe you are not putting them inside optibay?

    I've been thinking to buy WD Scorpion Blue 1TB...but it only has 5400RPM and not 7200RPM :(

    I have been using this drive since it launched and it works great. It's 5400RPM. The WD Scorpio Blue 1TB spins at a weird 5200RPM and is thicker at 12.5mm; I would definitely recommend the Samsung over the WD.

    Yeah. It's triple-platter and has slower spinning speed, hence it should be noticeably slower.
