    does anyone have any experience with this drive?

    i have the momentus xt which i love .
    but i just got as a gift , the intel x25-v and i would like to put it on my macbook pro and also throw another hard drive only for storage .

    is the momentus lp a good hdd ?

    or what do you guys think is the best ? buying a new hard drive (5400rpm ) or keep the momentus xt (7200rpm) just for storage ?

    I don't like seagate but that's just me. I prefer Western Digital HDD's.

    If it's just for storage you don't really need a 7200rpm. If you have a spare drive already that's 7200 why buy a new one though?

    On the fence
    I haven't used that drive, but I figure if you don't mind the small extra battery drain, just keep the XT in it since you already have it. If you'd rather get a 5400 RPM drive (and possibly a bigger one), that wouldn't be a bad idea, nor would it have much impact on performance. I have also had good experiences with WD drives, so I'd recommend a 500-750GB scorpio blue if you decide to get a new one. Don't get the 1TB, as it is too tall to fit in the optical bay.
