the IBMs? which is better?
I'm looking to pick up a couple more HDs, wondering which ones would be better....
I haven't seen any reviews of this hard drive yet.
Neither have other people: Storage review thread-where are the Barracuda IV reviews?? (http://www.storagereview.com/jive/sr/thread.jsp?forum=1&thread=15181)

well.. it's not like I was in a hurry to get them HDs.. =)
was just wondering which was better...
by the way, I wasn't snoozing.. I was posting in the babe thread...
Well, this is what I heard.
The IBM is a tiny bit faster in some benchmarks. It's also cooler running.
The seagate is a LOT quieter and performance is very similar to the IBM.
I guess it matters what kind of system you're building.
